Call for Papers and Special Issue Proposals


The Journal of Aggression, Conflict and Peace Research is welcoming submissions and special issue proposals.

About the journal

The Journal of Aggression, Conflict and Peace Research is unique in providing collective coverage of aggression, conflict and peace research, which are often separated disciplines. The journal’s approach stems from the ethos that in order to understand conflict and aggression it is also necessary to understand peace and conflict resolution (and vice versa).

JACPR publishes a broad range of international original articles and review papers on all aspects of aggression, conflict and peace. It is aimed at both academic and practice development, with a clear remit of translating research findings into implementations for practice. Papers published in JACPR are double blind peer-reviewed.

Topics for submission include, but are not limited to:

  • Physical and sexual aggression, from individual violence to mass aggression, including genocide and terrorism.
  • The dynamics and evolution of conflict and resolution.
  • Peace research.

JACPR is published in association with the University of Central Lancashire and Ashworth Research Centre.
