The aim of this Journal is to provide a space for academics and counter-terrorism professionals to publish work focused on the study of terrorism. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the study of terrorism, high-quality submissions from all academic and professional backgrounds are encouraged. Students are also warmly encouraged to submit work for publication.

The Journal of Terrorism Research is pleased to invite papers for consideration in a Special Edition on Security and Counter-Terrorism Challenges arising from the Syrian Conflict.

This topic touches on many important issues at the top of the political agenda. The protracted conflict that is taking place in Syria is causing significant regional and global destabilisation, and its impacts have manifested themselves in tangible ways.

Regional players such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, as well as the impact of ISIS, are ensuring that this conflict does not have an end in sight. The security implications for the rest of the world are manifesting themselves in terrorist attacks such as those in Paris, Beirut, Tunis and Sousse during 2015.

This Special Edition of the Journal of Terrorism Research welcomes contributions on all aspects of the Security and Counter-Terrorism Challenges arising from the Syrian Conflict and encourages practitioners and academics from all disciplines to submit papers.

The following suggested topics provide a guide for submissions, but papers need not be limited to this list:

    The refugee and humanitarian crisis

    Cross-border migration and security issues

    Home-grown terrorism


    Islamic and/or right-wing extremism
    Counter-terrorism strategies (both national and international)
