Journal of Peace Research is an interdisciplinary and international peer-reviewed bimonthly journal of scholarly work in peace research. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
Journal of Peace Research (JPR) is at the forefront of serious academic research in conflict studies. One cannot claim to be a serious researcher in this field without reading JPR, with its articles on various subjects, using different approaches and methodologies. Of special interest are the special issues that focus on a particular theme; over the years several issues have been of great importance." S. Mansoob Murshed, Institute of Social Studies, The Hague
"Journal of Peace Research has established itself as one of the major forums for the ongoing debates about peace and security. It is proud of its positivist tradition, but also open to other approaches." Barry Buzan, London School of Economics, UK
"For several years JPR has published a creative mix of theoretical, empirical, and policy articles on peace and conflict research. I scan each new issue more carefully than any other journal I receive" Ted Robert Gurr, University of Maryland and Former President, International Studies Association
The Nils Petter Gleditsch JPR Article of the Year Award, 2013, went to Anja Shortland, Katerina Christopoulou, and Charalampos Makatsoris for their article 'War and famine, peace and light? The economic dynamics of conflict in Somalia 1993-2009'

Journal of Peace Research is an interdisciplinary and international peer reviewed bimonthly journal of scholarly work in peace research. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
Edited at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), by an international editorial committee, Journal of Peace Research strives for a global focus on conflict and peacemaking. From its establishment in 1964, authors from over 50 countries have published in JPR.
The Journal encourages a wide conception of peace, but focuses on the causes of violence and conflict resolution. Without sacrificing the requirements for theoretical rigour and methodological sophistication, articles directed towards ways and means of peace are favoured.
