Central European Journal of International and Security Studies (CEJISS) is a quarterly journal that publishes peer-reviewed scholarly articles across the entire field of International Relations and International Security. CEJISS is a pluralist journal. It favours a variety of theories and methods used as well as topics and geographical areas covered. Nonetheless, CEJISS is primarily (but not exclusively) interested in understanding the drivers of the contemporary world’s change – from geopolitical shifts, nationalist resurgence and regionalisation to environmental and technological changes. Rather than specialising in a particular theme, it prefers to explicate the broader impacts and mutual entanglements of these processes. CEJISS publishes articles focused on Central and Eastern Europe, the region of its primary focus, but also other regions and the global international system. It is open to inter-disciplinary, cross-thematic and trans-regional works discussing international aspects of politics and security. CEJISS also welcomes policy-relevant articles. However, please note that all articles must meet the usual research standards (they need to be research articles in the first place).
Since its foundation in 2007, it has been proudly committed to the principle of non-commercial open access publishing (diamond open access). CEJISS puts an emphasis on the quality and fairness of the peer-review process and openness about its policies. CEJISS believes in bringing added value to authors by aiming for short publishing process, including transparent and personal communication. While based in Prague and the Central European region, CEJISS has always had a global outlook. CEJISS is indexed by Scopus, ERIH, ProQuest, Ebsco, Google Scholar and other databases. All the manuscripts undergo both editorial screening and double-blind review by external experts. It is published by Metropolitan University Prague.
There are no publication fees or processing charges.
