A New Kind of Journal
Stability is a fundamentally new kind of journal. Open-access, it publishes research quickly and free of charge in order to have a maximal impact upon policy and practice communities. Stability helps to connect policymakers, practitioners, academics and others with timely, peer-reviewed research on a wide range of issues related to stabilization, peacekeeping, state building, crime and violence prevention, development cooperation and humanitarian action. Stability is dedicated to providing a vehicle for academics and researchers based in fragile, failed and conflict-affected states to publish their work.
