Critical Studies on Terrorism
Critical Studies on Terrorism is an international, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal. The journal seeks to publish quality research on all aspects of terrorism, counter-terrorism and state terror. All submitted manuscripts are subject to an initial blind peer review by the editors and, if found suitable for further consideration, to a second peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees. Submission is by email. Critical Studies on Terrorism aims to create space for robust, innovative research on terrorism and political violence and encourages fruitful intellectual engagement between critical and orthodox accounts of terrorism. In particular, the Editors are looking for empirical, theoretical and policy-oriented articles that recognise the inherently problematic nature of the terrorism label, employ a critical-normative perspective broadly defined, and challenge accepted orthodoxies. Research on terrorism employing methodological and disciplinary perspectives from outside the political science and international relations paradigms is especially encouraged.
