Stability: International Journal of Security & Development

Stability: International Journal of Security & Development (ISSN 2165-2627) is a fundamentally new kind of journal. Open-access, it publishes research quickly and free of charge in order to have a maximal impact upon policy and practice communities. It fills a crucial niche. Despite the allocation of significant policy attention and financial resources to a perceived relationship between development assistance, security and stability, a solid evidence base is still lacking.

Stability is operated by the Centre for Security Governance (CSG), a non-profit think tank dedicated to the study of security and governance transitions in fragile, failed and conflict-affected states (FFCAS).

Research in this area, while growing rapidly, is scattered across journals focused upon broader topics such as international development, international relations and security studies. Accordingly, Stability's objective is to: "Foster an accessible and rigorous evidence base, clearly communicated and widely disseminated, to guide future thinking, policymaking and practice concerning communities and states experiencing widespread violence and conflict."

The journal will accept submissions from a wide variety of disciplines, including development studies, international relations, politics, economics, anthropology, sociology, psychology and history, among others. In addition to focusing upon large-scale armed conflict and insurgencies, Stability will address the challenge posed by local and regional violence within ostensibly stable settings such as Mexico, Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia and elsewhere.

A thorough yet streamlined peer-review and publication process will ensure that research findings are available without delay to those individuals and organisations which need them the most. The open-access format will enhance the journal's accessibility, and Stability will disseminate its content and enhance the impact of the research it features through the use of social and professional networking tools and interactive technologies.

Stability: International Journal of Security & Development is a fundamentally new kind of journal. Open-access, it publishes research quickly and free of charge in order to have a maximal impact upon policy and practice communities.
