Call for Papers – Journal for Deradicalization Summer Issue No.35 – 2023


We invite academics, practitioners, and policy makers to submit articles for the next Issue (No. 35 Summer 2023) of the Journal for Deradicalization to be published June 30, 2023. Article types may include research papers, working papers, policy recommendations, conference reports, field experiences, interviews, book reviews and program introductions within the topic of radicalization and deradicalization studies of all radical milieus and ideologies. You may use updated versions of previously published or unpublished work. However, original work will be preferred. The length of the contributions should be between 5.000 (for policy papers, field experiences, program introductions, book reviews) and 10.000 (research papers, working papers, interviews) words. Languages accepted are English and German.

If you are interested in submitting an article, please send a short abstract (ca. 250 words) about your article and topic together with your affiliation to: contact@journal-derad.com until no later than April 24, 2023.

Please indicate the type of article you want to write and the approximate length. You will hear right away about the acceptance of your proposal. Afterwards we will ask you to send in the manuscript for peer review no later than May 08, 2023. Your article will then have to pass through a double-blind peer review process and you will hear back from us as soon as we have feedback for your manuscript. Although we try hard to provide quick and high-quality reviews, it might take some time until the manuscript was processed. Sometimes we will suggest including the article in a later issue, if accepted. Please be aware that there will be no copyediting! You will be responsible for orthography and style and articles will be rejected if they are not copyedited by the authors. We do prefer APA style citation but leave the decision regarding the citation style to the authors.

For reference please see our current issue #34 Spring 2023.

Feel free to share this call with your colleagues and anyone who might be interested!
We look forward to all submissions! For more information, you can follow us on Facebook or Twitter (@JD_JournalDerad).
