Information for Authors

The Journal for Peace and Justice Studies publishes work from a variety of disciplines, including, but not limited to, education, law, nursing, philosophy, theology, social and political theory, and public policy. While the editors particularly encourage contributions arising from the Judeo-Christian intellectual traditions, they welcome all submissions that promote peace and seek to build a just society. Discussions of abstract and conceptual issues underlying substantive problems, and empirical research aiming at their resolution, will also be considered. Shorter articles, review essays, book reviews, and commentaries are also published.
