Call for papers – CSQ45

CSQ45 is scheduled to be published in October 2023. We are now receiving manuscripts, which should be related to conflict analysis and management, study cases on organizational and international conflicts, mediation and alternative dispute resolution.

Regarding the articles submitted for CSQ45, we have the following information:

1. Due to an overwhelming submission and publication of Boko Haram-related articles, we will stop for the moment accepting articles on this topic.

2. Due to the overwhelming submission and publication of articles related to Nigeria, we will prioritize articles that will cover other countries/regions.

3. CSQ will prioritize the articles covering topics such as traditional conflict management practices, conflict analysis of large-scale conflicts or articles of methodology and analysis of negotiation and mediation techniques, organizational conflict or related to public policy.

The Conflict Studies Quarterly (CSQ) is published and supervised by a group of scholars of the Conflict Studies Center, affiliated to the College of Political, Administrative and Communication Sciences at Babeș-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

The journal was developed as a response to the scarcity of publications on conflict analysis and management in Romania. It is, at this time, the only journal that covers this field.

CSQ is already listed in EBSCO, the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), ERIH Plus and in Thomson Reuters’s Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). The journal remains under evaluation for possible coverage in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), SCOPUS, Cabell’s Directories, Proquest, Journalseek and JSTOR.

Those of you who want to contribute should send a title and a 400 words description of their proposed article by 1st of August, 2023. The complete article is expected no later than August 25, 2023.

Please send your proposal at
