Journal of Global Security Studies

The Journal of Global Security Studies (JoGSS), a new publication from the International Studies Association, will launch its first issue with Oxford University Press in January 2016. The journal will publish first-rate work addressing a variety of concerns and approaches ranging from methodological, epistemological, theoretical, normative, and empirical concerns reflected in the field of global security studies and, more importantly, encourage dialoge, engagement, and conversation across different parts of the field.

Call for Proposals-NOW CLOSED

Issued July 1, 2014: The JoGSS editorial team calls for paper proposals to be part of the journal's first special issue on the theme of the future of global security (studies). We are particularly interested in proposals making a strong and compelling argument about what the future of global security studies will (or should) be that explicitly engages a variety of relevant perspectives.

The editors hope to receive proposals based on ongoing work and creatively addressing some of the following questions: (1) How should we think of security? Whose security and what kind of security should we focus on? Should we be segmenting off different perspectives or exploring the links between them (or both)? (2) How should we think about global security? What are, or will be, the most pressing global security concerns and issues, and can we separate them from national or regional ones? How might we engage with all that global entails? (3) How should we study global security? What are the most promising approaches and theories, and what are the shortcomings of existing approaches in the field of security studies? How can we assemble the knowledge we have accumulated in the field to formulate and address questions in ways that do service to the wide variety of approaches?

We will invite authors of promising proposals to submit draft papers and authors of the most promising papers to a workshop from which we will craft a special issue of the journal.

  • Paper invitations issued: September 1.
  • Draft papers (approximately 8,000 words) due: December 30.
