Guidelines for Contributors

The Peace and Conflict Review is dedicated to publishing high quality academic papers on all aspects of peace and violent conflict, with a view to informing students, policy makers, NGOs and other interested parties of relevant analysis, empirical findings, policy options, and areas for further research.

Articles and conference papers, in the range of 5,000 to 8,000 words, should be sent to in a rich text format. We also welcome review articles of relevant academic books and scholarly articles, to a maximum of 1,500 words.

Only submissions written in sound English will be considered. The Review will not normally be able to copy edit articles, nor will we be able to make detailed comments on manuscripts. While referees may offer suggestions for improvement, they reserve the right to reject substandard submissions outright.

Citations must be presented according to a consistent, internationally recognized style, preferably APA. Parenthetical references are better suited to the online presentation of the Review, so please use footnotes/endnotes only for the provision of additional information. Guidelines for APA citations can be found at

Manuscripts should be preceded by a cover page providing the full title of the article, the author name(s) and contact information, and a 100 to 150 word abstract.

A short biography should also be included, containing relevant information about the author's academic background and previous publications.
