Southern African Peace and Security Studies, the flagship publication of the SACCPS, has entered its second year of publication. In keeping with a publishing schedule of two issues per year, we are expecting to be publishing volume 2, number 1 in the next few weeks.
We are now calling for papers for volume 2, number 2, to be published by year's end. We welcome research articles (6,000 to 8,000 words), policy briefs (1,500 to 2,000 words) and book reviews (up to 800 words). In the interest of maintaining high academic standards, all articles are peer-reviewed by experts in their respective fields. We welcome articles from both academics and practitioners, and any topics associated with peace and security in the southern African region are welcome.
For those interested in making a submission, completed manuscripts, prepared in accordance with the house style of the journal (found on this page), should be submitted to the editor by email for consideration no later than 25 October 2013.
We continue to aim for a publication with a quality mix of cutting-edge academic and practical policy-oriented content, offering a variety of perspectives from experts and practitioners from within and beyond the region. The journal is published online (some hard copies are also produced) and is available free of charge.
