The Journal of Interdisciplinary Conflict Science (JICS) was founded in 2015 as a collaboratory effort by graduates of Nova Southeastern University’s Department of Conflict Resolution Studies (DCRS) Ph.D. program, as a vehicle for promoting the development of conflict science.
The JICS promotes both interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches to exploring the relationship between conflict theory, research and practice, while encouraging the development of new theoretical principles and new research designs, focused on creating new resolution techniques. JICS articles address the implications of theory for practice and research directions, how research can better inform practice, how research can contribute to theory development with important implications for practice. The JICS also publishes articles which examine current conflicts from new theoretical perspectives.
JICS does not publish works specifically designed to promote activism. The views expressed in articles and other contributions published in the JICS do not necessarily reflect an endorsement by the editorial board or staff of the JICS or that of the peer reviewers or their affiliated institutions.
