News and Events from PEACE

The Journal for the Study of Peace and Conflict, the peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal of the Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies, ISSN 1095-1962, publishes a variety of scholarly articles, essays, teaching notes, and poetry on topics such as war, peace, global cooperation, domestic violence, and interpersonal conflict resolution; including questions of military and political security, the global economy, and global environmental issues.  We wish to promote discussion of both strategic and ethical questions surrounding issues of war, peace, the environment, and justice. 


The Wisconsin Institute is committed to a balanced review of diverse perspectives. Submissions are welcome from all disciplines. Our intended audience includes scholars from a wide range of interests within the university community and educated members of the larger public. The format allows the publication of original, previously-unpublished works of sufficient length to give authors the opportunity to discuss a particular topic in depth. Other forms of creative writing are invited. Contributors should avoid submissions accessible only to specialists in their field. The Journal for the Study of Peace and Conflict also includes book reviews. Persons interested in reviewing should contact the editor at


Deadline for submissions is May 1, 2014.

Please e-mail submissions to Kathryn Blakeman at 

Format and Length: 

The editors accept research papers, teaching notes, and creative writing for the peer-review process. We also accept book reviews.  Manuscripts should be no longer than 10,000 words and should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed.  Please submit an "anonymous" manuscript with a 100-150 word abstract and 5-6 keywords, and, in a separate document, the submission category and contact information for the author(s). The editors are the final arbiters of length, grammar, and usage. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to use copyrighted material and submitting proof of copyright permission. For more details, see the style sheet at
