Focus and Scope
The goal of Journal of Human Security is to disseminate applied research into a secure and sustainable future for humanity. It continues the Australasian Journal of Human Security. Journal of Human Security endeavours to:
- Provide a forum for researchers to foster interdisciplinary inquiry in broad human security issues such as track two diplomacy, ethnic conflict, terrorism, religious extremism, human rights, demographic change, population health, human ecology, sustainable economics and related areas;
- Inform readers about upcoming events, ongoing and new research projects, trends and discussions, newly published monographs, and available scholarships;
- Encourage a multidisciplinary approach to issues that have traditionally been viewed as mostly unidisciplinary;
- Maintain an appeal to a wide readership with both high academic standards and close relevance to practice;
- Meet international standards of excellence.
Peer Review Process
Journal of Human Security has a fast yet rigorous single-blind peer-review process. After an in-house pre-sceening of the manuscript, we carefully select experts in the topic to review and evaluate the submission. We collect at least two reviews from high qualified scholars before sending it for decision to the Editor-in-Chief or one of the Editorial Board members. The usual deadline for a reviewer to submit his report is two weeks. The manuscripts are evaluated according to the originality, scientific soundness, interest to the readers, clarity of presentation and English language level.[Top]
