The Journal of Genocide Research is a cross-disciplinary quarterly journal that promotes the scholarly study of genocide.
Genocide is a contested legal, historical, sociological and political term that is applied in various spheres: in international law, in academic analyses of genocide, past and present, and in political claim making. The Journal of Genocide Research publishes academic articles that combine empirical research with conceptual reflection on these and related topics, like social psychology, military intervention, post-genocide conflict management as well as gender and memory issues. The journal also includes academic reviews of recently published works within the subject area, and some of its issues are Special Issues, which gather together articles focussed around a particular theme or case of genocide. All submissions undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by two external scholars. The journal is published by Routledge.
The journal was founded in 1999 and, since 2005, has been the official journal of the International Network of Genocide Scholars. Its senior editor is A. Dirk Moses, and the other four editors are Cathie Carmichael, Simone Gigliotti, Jens Meierhenrich, and Dan Stone. It was previously edited by Henry R. Huttenbach, Dominik J. Schaller, and Jürgen Zimmerer.
