Journal call for papers from Journal of Aggression, Conflict and Peace Research

JACPR represents a truly interdisciplinary approach to understanding issues in aggression, conflict and peace studies.

As such, the Journal seeks quantitative, qualitative or mixed-method approaches from a variety of disciplines (e.g., sociology, anthropology, psychology, criminology). JACPR will also consider concise theory-driven reviews, especially those with important application to research, practice and/or policy.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Hate, discrimination and prejudice in context (e.g., workplace, legal system)
  • Sociocultural and other empirical perspectives on self- and other-directed violence (e.g., suicide, homicide, other violent offending)
  • The impacts of violence on victims
  • Military issues such as healthcare, trauma and reintegration to civilian life
  • Assessment and practice issues concerning violent and non-violent offenders
  • Animal aggression research and implications for human aggression
  • Peace education
  • Peace psychology
  • Nonviolence/nonkilling
  • Zones of stable peace/peace systems
  • Mediation and other forms of conflict resolution
  • Theory and practice of positive peace
