Types of Submissions

top of page The Journal of Peacebuilding & Development accepts the following types of articles:
  • Articles address critical themes or analyses on the peacebuilding–development nexus and usually have a practice or case study component. They must be contextualised within the scholarly and policy literature and existing debates (7,000 words maximum, including endnotes and bibliographical references).

  • Policy Dialogues are short policy briefings engaging key topics on the international policy agenda. Presently JPD is focused on: The New Deal on Engagement with Fragile States, and the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

Checklist: What to Include

top of page
  1. Author details. Please include all authors’ full names, affiliations, postal addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses on the cover page. Where available, please also include ORCiDs and social media handles (Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn). One author will need to be identified as the corresponding author, with their email address normally displayed in the article PDF (depending on the journal) and the online article. Authors’ affiliations are the affiliations where the research was conducted. If any of the named co-authors moves affiliation during the peer-review process, the new affiliation can be given as a footnote. Please note that no changes to affiliation can be made after your paper is accepted. Read more on authorship.

    Any Acknowledgements or Funding information should also be included (see below). It is helpful if you provide this identifying information (including biographical notes and [if applicable], Acknowledgements, and Funding information) on a cover page or separate file to the main manuscript so that it can easily be removed to anonymise the manuscript for peer review.

  2. Abstract and keywords. Papers should be submitted with an abstract of no more than 200 words and 10 keywords reflecting the theme of your submission. Read tips on writing your abstract
  3. Sub-headings should be used to help structure your paper, and ‘pullouts’ identified in your article that make a telling, original point and reflect the logic and flow of the article.
  4. References and endnotes. Bibliographic references must be supplied for all articles – please follow the journal’s (author: date) system – a complete guide to references is available here. References should be complete and listed in alphabetical order. The reference section must only include resources specifically cited in the text and vice-versa. Notes should be limited to 10, and placed at the end of the paper as endnotes.
