Extremism Journal (Journal)

Activity: Publication peer-review and editorial workEditorial responsibility


Extremism is a high-quality, peer-reviewed, open access journal, addressing the broad phenomenon of political and religious extremism. We welcome contributions from researchers and practitioners interested in political and religious extremism broadly defined. This includes contributions that address: conceptual issues around extremism; specific extremist groups and subcultures; violence and other harms arising from extremism; ideology, narratives, and doctrine in extremist spaces; the relationships between extremism, terrorism, and the mainstream; approaches to countering extremism; methodological approaches; ethical issues; and other issues relating to extremism. Extremism is methods agnostic and we also welcome high-quality descriptive research where it makes a genuine contribution to knowledge.
