it is our hope that the series will continue to provide critical reflections on women, peace and security in diverse contexts, and with potentially transformative effects.

The LSE Centre for Women, Peace and Security Working Paper Series is an outlet for academic arguments, position papers and policy briefs. It showcases work in progress by academics and researchers from any discipline and sector in the field of women, peace and security research and practice. The editors welcome new submissions.

The LSE Women, Peace and Security Working Paper Series editorial board is led by Dr Paul Kirby and Associate Professor Laura J. Shepherd.

 

How to submit

  • Content: Flexible, including preliminary research findings, position papers and policy briefs.
  • Length: Academic papers should be no more than 8000 words, including a 250 word abstract and footnotes. Policy briefs may be shorter, around 2000 words.
  • Structure: to include an abstract. Headings and subheadings are encouraged.
  • Style: Academic or policy oriented, but accessible to the non-specialist reader and carefully grounded in scholarly literature where appropriate.
  • References: Sequentially numbered footnotes. The series uses Chicago style, it would therefore be preferable if authors used this format; there is no need to provide a separate bibliography.
  • Review: Papers will be reviewed by two members of the LSE Women, Peace and Security Working Paper Series editorial board.
  • Publication: Papers will be published in PDF on the LSE Women, Peace and Security website and LSE Research Online, with a limited print run.
  • Public engagement: Authors are encouraged to write a post (750-1200 words) for the Centre for Women, Peace and Security blog to introduce their paper to a wider audience.

Submissions should be sent by email only to women.peace.security@lse.ac.uk.

Submissions must be in a Word document (not PDF), including the title, the names of the author(s), email address for correspondence, abstract with keywords, and the month and year of submission.
