Upcoming Issue Themes & Deadlines:

Peace Review is a quarterly, multidisciplinary, transnational journal of research and analysis, focusing on the current issues and controversies that underlie the promotion of a more peaceful world. Social progress requires, among other things, sustained intellectual work, which should be pragmatic as well as analytical. The results of that work should be ingrained into everyday culture and political discourse.

We define peace research very broadly to include peace, human rights, development, ecology, culture, and related issues. The task of the journal is to present the results of this research and thinking in short, accessible and substantive essays.

Peace Review is edited by Dr. Robert Elias of the University of San Francisco and published by Taylor and Francis/Routledge Publishing Company. Peace Review is supported by the Dean's Office at USF.

Every year, Utne Reader announces its nominees for the magazine's Annual Independent Press Awards, which honors the very best in independent media from the pool of more than 1,300 sources Utne uses to cull its content. Peace Review was nominated for an Utne Independent Press Award in International Coverage in both 2007 and 2010!
