Call for Articles
Deadline: December 10, 2009

The Journal of Strategic Security (JSS) invites manuscript submissions for the winter issue, Vol. 2, No. 4.

Scholars and practitioners from around the globe are welcome to share their perspectives on a wide range of strategic security issues.

About the Journal of Strategic Security:

The Journal of Strategic Security is a peer-reviewed professional journal published quarterly by Henley-Putnam University.

JSS provides a multi-disciplinary forum for scholarship and discussion of strategic security issues drawing from the fields of intelligence, terrorism and counterterrorism studies and protection, among others.

The Journal encourages diversity in theoretical foundations, research methods, and approaches. Quantitative and qualitative studies, for example, each offer valuable contributions to the field of strategic security.

Academic disciplines of anthropology, criminology, economics, history, international relations, political science, psychology, and sociology are welcome, as are the applied scholarly fields of security studies, strategic studies, and intelligence studies.

JSS emphasizes contemporary security issues, so manuscripts focused on non-state actors are of particular interest. Topics such as counter-terrorism, jihadist ideology, genocide, global policing, insurgencies, intelligence, inter-state armed conflict, irregular warfare, radicalization, risk management, terrorism, threat assessment, and violent extremism are well suited to the Journal, as are contributions on security threats arising from transnational crime, global climate change, failing states, energy and environmental security issues, and health crises such as pandemics.

JSS publishes review articles, original empirical research, and analytic/conceptual works that contribute to a better understanding of security-related threats and ways to prevent or mitigate their impact. Each article should analyze and include implications for policy and practice.
