The Peace and Conflict Monitor is an online magazine that publishes unique and diverse perspectives on all issues related to peace and conflict. We hope, also, to serve as a point of reference for the community of scholars, students, researchers, practitioners, and journalists who are our primary contributors and make up the majority of our readership.

To submit an article:

Send us an email ( with the article attached, preferably in rich text format (.rtf). Please include the author’s full name and a brief biographical note, as well as a short abstract (~150 words). Any graphs or images should also be attached to the email and should be of high quality – we will resize them. 

The article itself should be in the range of 1,500 – 5,000 words, not including footnotes and references.

Articles on the longer end of this scale and based on substantive research are generally published under a heading such as: Analysis, In-Depth, Special Report, Policy, Research Summary, or Essay, while shorter articles are generally published as Comment or Opinion. Articles in the form of a Book Review, Film Review, Interview, News Roundup, or Diary can be of variable length and style. We also accept relevant contributions of original short fiction and poetry, as well as podcasts and photo essays. 

Full bibliographic information for all works cited within the article must be provided, either in footnotes or through a parenthetical referencing system. 

Editorial policy:

We reserve the right to reject article submissions outright, return them to the author for revision, or to edit them ourselves, in keeping with the general style and tone of our magazine.  Please note, however, that we are not a campaigning publication, do not serve any particular political or commercial interests, and do not necessarily condone or agree with the arguments or opinions of our contributors, even if we edit and publish them.
