The IJCV is a forum for scientific exchange and public dissemination of up-to-date scientific knowledge on conflict and violence. The IJCV is peer reviewed, open access and included in the Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) and other relevant databases (e.g. SCOPUS, EBSCO, ProQuest, DNB, ...).
The subjects on which we concentrate—conflict and violence—have always been a concern in many areas of academic life. Consequently, the journal encompasses contributions from a wide range of disciplines including sociology, political science, education, social psychology, criminology, ethnology, history, political philosophy, urban studies, economics, and the study of religions.
The IJCV is published twice a year, in spring and in autumn. In order to promote debate on questions that often tend to be unfairly marginalized, each issue begins with a focus section featuring contributions addressing a selected field of topical interest. Examples are given below. These subjects are announced in advance on our website and in calls for papers. Each issue of the journal also contains an open section to provide a platform for general contributions on conflict and violence.
