The European Journal of International Security

The European Journal of International Security (EJIS), our newest journal, launched in 2016. It publishes theoretical, methodological and empirical papers at the cutting-edge of research into international and global security challenges. Welcoming high-quality research from around the world, EJIS covers all areas of international security, including: conflict and peacebuilding; strategy and warfare; environmental, health and food security; energy, ecological and climate security; human, gender and everyday security; technology and security; and security governance.

EJIS aims to make connections and build bridges, both between different disciplinary and theoretical perspectives, but also across regional boundaries and academic parochialisms. Recent highlights include the first Special Issue on Composing Global Security in issue 4:3 (2019), and the publication of the first Junior-Senior Dialogue in 3:3 (2018).

The EJIS editorial team is led by Professors Edward Newman (Leeds), Jason Ralph (Leeds) and Jacqui True (Monash), with a team of associate editors in Leeds and regional editors around the world. You can see the full editorial board on the Cambridge University Press (CUP) website.

First view

CUP publish most EJIS articles online online ahead of their inclusion in print issues. This makes it easier to keep up with research into international security as soon as it happens. First view articles are often open access for the first fortnight. Visit the CUP website to see the latest EJIS first view articles.
