The Journal of Non-Traditional Security is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed scholarly journal, published quarterly, that seeks to promote theoretical and methodological papers based on empirical and evidence-based research on challenges outside the realm of traditional security and their wider implications. JNTS provides a meeting point for scholars and analysts engaged in research in all global corridors. JNTS provides scholars and practitioners a platform for exchanging analysis and ideas on the dynamics of the following:


  • Human security and development
  • International organizations and non-state actors
  • Conflict and community security
  • Human rights and societal security
  • Poverty and economic security
  • Environmental security
  • Climate change and disaster/crisis management
  • Food/water security
  • Energy security
  • Health security
  • Human migration and movement
  • Terrorism and transnational organized crime


JNTS welcomes articles from established and early-career scholars on a broad range of intellectual perspectives and invites the submission of articles that promote distinctive analytical approaches and perspectives, including the application of traditional and innovative research methods, including qualitative, quantitative, comparative and mixed methods, to new problems and debates. The geographical scope of JNTS is worldwide and therefore seeks to advance research and scholarly debates related to topics spanning all regions of the globe.


Original research articles are welcome for the initial issue of the journal, scheduled for January 2019. Article length should be 6,000-10,000 words (not including notes) or approximately 20-35 double-spaced pages. Contributors should follow the general guidelines set out by the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th Edition.


Proposals may be submitted to and include a 300-word abstract/proposal. Notification of proposal acceptance will be made no later than August 15, 2018.
