Southern African Peace and Security Studies (SAPSS) is an academic journal established in 2012 to serve as a forum for discussion on issues surrounding conflict, peace, security (whether regional, national, local or human) and political (in)stability in the region. It is to be the flagship publication for the Southern African Centre for Collaboration on Peace and Security (SACCPS).Published twice a year (in June and December) as an open access journal, it is freely available online, and includes academic articles, policy briefs and book reviews.
The journal aims to publish rigorous theoretical and empirical research in all areas of peace and security studies in Africa, with a particular focus on practical policy-oriented research. The journal will also address evolving developments within
the discipline. Each issue will normally contain a mixture of peer-reviewed research articles, policy briefs and reviews. Articles should address critical themes or case analyses and must be contextualized within the scholarly and policy literature and existing debates on peace and security in Africa.
SAPSS accepts academic articles of between 6,000 and 8,000 words (including endnotes and bibliographical references), policy briefs of between 1,500 and 2,000 words, and book reviews of up to 800 words.
