The Journal for Deradicalization (JD) is the only independent and peer reviewed open access online journal about the theory and practice of deradicalization and processes of radicalization worldwide. The JD is published four times per year (quarterly).
Table of Contents The JD seeks to provide a unique platform for established scholars as well as academics, policy makers and professionals entering the field of Terrorism, Political Violence, Conflict Studies, and (De-) Radicalization research. It invites them to:
  • present their perspectives on the theory and practice of deradicalization work, as well as radicalization processes and new developments in radical and violent milieus or groups;
  • submit to the journal accounts of evidence-based, empirical scientific research and analyses, conference reports, practical and methodological experiences from field work or policy recommendations;
  • use the journal as a forum for debate and commentary on issues related to the above.
The Journal for Deradicalization (JD) is based on the independence and transparency of academic standards. All articles are openly accessible free of charge and peer reviewed by experts in the field – practitioners and academics – to ensure the policy relevance without compromising professional scholarly standards.

Impartiality, objectivity and accuracy are guiding principles we expect contributors to adhere to.
