The Journal of World-Systems Research is a biannual, open access, peer-reviewed academic journal in the field of world-systems analysis that was established in 1995 by founding editor Christopher Chase-Dunn. It is published by the Political Economy of the World-System Section of the American Sociological Association and supported by the University of Pittsburgh. The journal's current editor-in-chief is Jackie Smith (University of Pittsburgh).

The journal was one of the first online peer-reviewed academic journals, having originally been published as an online paper archive accessed using the Gopher (protocol).

The journal describes its purpose as being:

to produce a high quality publication of world-systems research articles; to publish quantitative and comparative research on world-systems; to publish works of theory construction and codification of causal propositions; to publish data sets in connection with articles; to publish reviews of books relevant to world-systems studies; and to encourage authors to use the hypermedia advantages of electronic publication to present their research results.[1]
