The Journal of Conflict Resolution is an interdisciplinary journal of social scientific theory and research on human conflict. It focuses especially on international conflict, but its pages are open to a variety of contributions about intergroup conflict, as well as between nations, that may help in understanding problems of war and peace. Reports about innovative applications, as well as basic research, are welcomed, especially when the results are of interest to scholars in several disciplines.

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jcr. Submitted papers should be double-spaced throughout, with footnotes, references, tables, and graphs on separate pages, and should follow The Chicago Manual of Style. Total word count, including everything, should be at a minimum about 8,000 and not exceed 11,000 words. The word count should appear on the title page. Manuscripts will be sent out anonymously for editorial evaluation, so the author's name and affiliation should appear only on a separate cover page; all other documents should be fully anonymized. Manuscripts should begin with an abstract of no more than 150 words. A statement of our evaluation procedures appears in the March 1978 issue.
Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal. Authors submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another journal, nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content. Authors in doubt about what constitutes prior publication should consult the editor.
Replication Policy. Authors of quantitative empirical articles must make their data and other relevant material available for replication purposes. Please note the firm JCR replication policy. The JCR will not publish any articles (in print or online) until the Editor has received all the necessary replication materials. Required material would include all data, specialized computer programs, program recodes, and an explanatory file describing what is included and how to reproduce the published results. This material must be posted by the month of publication. Information that must remain confidential--such as that which would identify survey respondents--should be removed. All files should be sent electronically to the Managing Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org for posting alongside the electronic version of the article on the web site maintained by our publisher at http://journals.sagepub.com/home/jcr. In addition, authors may post their data files on their own websites or anywhere else they wish. Users of all data posted at the JCR SAGE web site will be expected to acknowledge the posting used.
If you or your funder wish your article to be freely available online to nonsubscribers immediately upon publication (gold open access), you can opt for it to be included in SAGE Choice, subject to the payment of a publication fee. The manuscript submission and peer review procedure is unchanged. On acceptance of your article, you will be asked to let SAGE know directly if you are choosing SAGE Choice. To check journal eligibility and the publication fee, please visit SAGE Choice. For more information on open access options and compliance at SAGE, including self/author archiving deposits (green open access) visit SAGE Publishing Policies on our Journal Author Gateway.
ORCID. As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.
The collection of ORCID iDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID iD you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID iD will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.
If you do not already have an ORCID iD please follow this link to create one or visit our ORCID homepage to learn more.
