The short answer is no. We only will look at completed work, so we cannot help give ideas or write your thesis for you. However, once your thesis is finished, if you want to submit to us an abbreviated version (within the 3-5 page limit) we will work with you if you journal is selected to publish it in our online journal. 

No need to print a hard copy!

If you want to write something specifically for our blog or journal and want to work with us to see what topics we might want to feature, you can reach out to us at adpacem.icu@gmail.com. We won’t write the article for you, of course, but we are happy to briefly outline some topics to explore.

Yes, we will review Japanese submissions by tapping into the graduate student community at ICU.

Almost all fields of study can somehow relate back to peace. We do encourage creative writing so a topic of your own choice is welcome, and doesn’t specifically have to be written from a peace studies perspective.
