Journal of Resistance Studies (JRS)


Authors should send all submissions and resubmissions to JRS to

Some articles are dealt with by the editors immediately, but most are read by outside referees. For submissions that are sent to referees, we try to complete the evaluation process within three months.

As a general rule, JRS operates a double-blind peer review process in which the reviewer’s name is withheld from the author and the author’s name is withheld from the reviewer. Reviewers may at their own discretion opt to reveal their name to the author in their review, but our standard policy is for both identities to remain concealed.

Within reasonable limits we will referee articles which do not strictly conform to JRS style requirements. Absolute technical requirements in the first round are: ample line spacing throughout (1.5 or double), an abstract, adequate documentation using the author-date citation system and an alphabetical reference list, and a word count on the front page (include all elements in the word count).
