Objective The main objectives of Peace Economics, Peace Science and Public Policy (PEPS) are: - to further research in Peace Science and Peace Economics, - to expose the scholarly community to innovative peace-related research, - to disseminate the study of peace economics to a wider audience.
PEPS accepts both theoretical and empirical contributions to the fields of Peace Economics and Peace Science. In line with Peace Science tradition, PEPS welcomes contributions from an interdisciplinary community of scholars from a variety of disciplines including economics, political science, regional science, mathematics, and history, among others.
Given the fact that the journal is online, authors are not asked to limit themselves to a set word or page count for full-length papers. In order to improve scientific communication within the field of Peace Science and Peace Economics, the journal also publishes “Letters,” to provide accounts of new original research. Letters generally do not exceed 2,500 words in length, exclusive of equations, graphs, and figures. Letters can concern either theoretical or applied work, and will be subject to the peer-review process. In order to make a decision in a short time reviewers are asked to give an “accept/reject” evaluation, without further comments.
Topics The journal publishes papers covering a wide range of topics with the common theme of peace and conflict analysis, including:
Alliances and games
Game and related theory
General equilibrium models of conflict and conflict management
Economic policies to cope with actual and potential conflicts
Mathematical approaches to conflict management
Mathematical models of arms races and wars
Studies on the causes of wars and political violence
The impact of conflicts and violence on welfare
Public policy aspects of both war-torn and post-conflict societies
Arms control, government spending and International Security
Trade wars and international economic sanctions
Article formats PEPS publishes both full-length papers and shorter “Letters.”
