Journal of Peace Research is an interdisciplinary and international bimonthly, covering scholarly work in peace research. It strives for a global perspective on peace and peacemaking, with particular focus on the causes of violence and conflict resolution. JPR is edited by Scott Gates (Editor), Gudrun Østby (Deputy Editor) Marianne Dahl (Deputy Editor), Bertrand Lescher-Nuland (Managing Editor), Ida Rudolfsen (Desk Editor), Júlia Palik (Social Media Editor), and Eirin Haugseth (Editorial Assistant) in collaboration with eighteen Associate Editors.
Journal of Peace Research not only publishes critical, cutting-edge research on peace, war, and violence. It has also taken extraordinary steps to lead the establishment of scientific standards for data replication policies in the field, resulting even in a published agreement with other journals to follow emerging best practices. Across a range of interdisciplinary areas, JPR seems to be as widely followed as it is closely read.
