The Journal of Conflict Studies (ISSN 1715-5673) (formerly Conflict Quarterly) was a journal of terrorism and low-intensity conflict that was first published in Canada in the Summer of 1980. It was edited by an 'executive editorial board of David Charters, Maurice Tugwell and Dominick Graham from the Centre for Conflict Studies at the University of New Brunswick. [1] It changed its name to the Journal of Conflict Studies in 1995 when the editors chose to publish the jounal annually.[2] As of 2008 it was published annually by the Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society, the current location of David Charters.[3]

The Journal of Conflict Studies is a peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary, and inter-disciplinary journal that is said to 'accept submissions from a multitude of academic backgrounds as well as area specialists, members of the military and journalists.' [4]

The journal appears to have ceased publication in 2009.
