Journal for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament

Call for Papers

1. Aims 
The nuclear threat will not end as long as nations continue to claim that nuclear weapons are essential for their national security (Nagasaki Peace Declaration, 2017). 

The main mission of the Journal for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament, edited by Research Center for Nuclear Weapons Abolition, Nagasaki University (RECNA), is to contribute to furthering nuclear disarmament and peace based on both theoretical and practical studies.

The journal will serve as a vehicle to put forward proposals for policies and other ideas that could contribute to nuclear disarmament, including ways of:
(1) rapidly implementing Article VI of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty,
(2) promoting the norms embodied in the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons to the fullest extent, and
(3) creating a new global governance regime for nuclear activities to facilitate the elimination of nuclear weapons. 

2. Scope 
Journal for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament will 

  • Publish articles on nuclear disarmament, nuclear non-proliferation and arms control.
  • Propose a new framework for global nuclear governance to facilitate and sustain a world without nuclear weapons.
  • Analyze the risks associated with reliance on nuclear deterrence.
  • Contribute to the consideration, development and utilization of policy tools embodying the humanitarian imperative for nuclear disarmament.
  • Introduce voices from Non-Nuclear Weapon States - especially from the global South - into the debate over the future of nuclear weapons.
  • Analyze the potential roles for Civil Society in advancing the nuclear disarmament process.

3. Disciplines covered 
Journal for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament will publish articles from a wide variety of disciplinary and cross-disciplinary backgrounds involving the humanities, natural and social sciences, including, but not limited to, studies on international politics, national security, international law, international organizations and civil society. Due to their many interconnections, the journal will publish articles on nuclear energy as well as nuclear weapons policy. Editors welcome both theory-oriented and policy-focused articles from scholars and practitioners. 

4. Peer Review 
All submitted manuscripts will undergo an initial editorial screening. If found suitable for further consideration, the manuscripts will be subject to peer review by two or more independent experts. All peer review is double blind.
