African Conflict & Peacebuilding Review

Vol. 1 (2011) through current issue

African Conflict and Peacebuilding Review is an interdisciplinary forum for creative and rigorous studies of conflict and peace in Africa and for discussions between scholars, practitioners, and public intellectuals in Africa, the United States, and other parts of the world. It includes a wide range of theoretical, methodological, and empirical perspectives on the causes of conflicts and peace processes including, among others, cultural practices relating to conflict resolution and peacebuilding, legal and political conflict preventative measures, and the intersection of international, regional, and local interests and conceptions of conflict and peace. ACPR is a joint publication of the Africa Peace and Conflict Network, the West African Research Association, and Indiana University Press.

Submission Guidelines

African Conflict and Peacebuilding Review (ACPR) is published by Indiana University Press, in partnership with the West African Research Association and the Africa Peace and Conflict Network (APCN).

ACPR accepts submissions for the following kind of works: i) Scholarly Research Articles, ii) Briefings, iii) Book and Film Reviews, and iv) Multimedia Presentations (i.e., podcasts and photo essays).

Manuscripts submitted to ACPR should not have been previously published in a journal or by a press. Multimedia submissions should not be under the copyright of another organization. Works submitted to ACPR should also not be currently under review elsewhere. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission for all copyrighted materials reproduced in their submission. Authors are expected to adhere to the standards for intellectual property rights and plagiarism, and authors assume full responsibility for the content of their submissions.

Submissions should be in English. All submissions are double blind peer reviewed. The names and affiliations of authors must be removed from the main document/file. Author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s) must be on a separate cover page. The cover page should include contact information, title of the paper, and a total word count (or size of the file for audios/videos/images). Authors should submit a short biography (100 words). All submissions should be sent electronically.

All manuscripts must be formatted according to the 15th edition of the Chicago Manual of StyleExternal Link guidelines . Manuscripts must be double-spaced with one inch margin on all sides. They should use a standard font (e.g., Times New Roman) in a size of at least 10 pts. They should be submitted in a MS Word compatible format such as .DOC, .DOCX, or .RTF.

Manuscripts submitted for publication as Scholarly Research Articles should be 8,000 to 10,000 words (including all notes and references), plus an abstract (100 to 150 words). Manuscripts must meet the academic research standards of works published in scholarly journals. Please e-mail manuscripts to Abu Bakarr Bah, abah@niu.edu and cc to ACPR2@niu.edu.

Manuscripts submitted for publication as Briefings should be 4,000 to 5,000 words (including all notes and references), plus an abstract (50 to 100 words). They should offer something of potential value to scholars, policymakers, or practitioners in our field or related ones (e.g., useful reflections, findings, best practices, etc). The Briefings series offers some flexibility to authors and the editors, but it is anticipated that submissions will fall under the following categories:

    i) critical and/or analytical commentaries on current or recent events, policy issues, current or pending legislation, legal cases or treaties, or anything topically relevant

    ii) analytical reports on conferences/workshops/conventions/symposia/meetings (NB: While some straightforward descriptions are acceptable, Briefings are not to be mere summaries of events. Authors should emphasize details/findings/lessons/material that others may find useful.)

    iii) analytical reports from participants or directors of training events or projects. ACPR blends theory and practice to advance both scholarship and applied work. Findings or lessons learned from training sessions or actual practice (e.g., peacebuilding projects, encounter groups, etc.) are therefore very welcome, and such submissions should be encouraged, particularly since most people will not realize that they may submit such material.

    iv) research papers or archival analyses that are shorter or less robust than standard research articles

    v) participant reflections from trainings based on research.

Briefings do not require original research data, but they should have some innovative or fresh component, such as a unique or original perspective or set of ideas. They are typically shorter than the scholarly research papers, do not include as many citations, and should be written in a clear and straightforward style. Please e-mail manuscripts to Mark Davidheiser, davidhei@nova.edu and cc to ACPR2@niu.edu.

Book and Film Reviews should be 1,000 to 1,500 words (including all notes and references). Please include all bibliographical information about the book or film at the head of the review. E-mail the manuscript to Tricia Redeker Hepner, thepner@utk.edu and cc to ACPR2@niu.edu

Multimedia features include audio, video, and photographs and will be included in the print and/or on electronic version of the journal. Multimedia submissions can be descriptive or analytical discussions of events, themes, and issues. They should be intellectually stimulating, aesthetically engaging, and, ideally, suitable for teaching. Please contact Niklas Hultin, ihultin@gmu.edu and cc ACPR2@niu.edu for detail on file format and size and how to send your submission.

All general questions about ACPR and timelines should be sent to the managing editors: ACPR@niu.edu or ACPR2@niu.edu.
