Centre for Syrian Studies launches open access journal

Syria Studies, the new open access journal of the Centre for Syrian Studies (CSS) at University of St Andrews, is being launched today in the School of International Relations.

Syria Studies is a peer reviewed journal that has previously been published in print under the series name St Andrews Papers on Contemporary Syria.
The aim of Syria Studies is to provide a space for scholars and students to publish work focused on the study of modern and contemporary Syria (history, politics, economy, & society). Given the interdisciplinary nature of Syria Studies, high-quality submissions from various academic and professional backgrounds are encouraged.
Dr Raymond Hinnebusch, Director of CSS and Editor in Chief of Syria Studies
The journal, managed by Dr Omar Imady and a team of Editors in the University, is proud to include some of the most renowned authorities on Syria on its Board of Reviewers. They are very keen for their work to reach a wide audience, and believe an open access journal, hosted by the University Library's OJS platform, provides this opportunity.
Knowledge and research about Syria which is made freely and widely available to those interested in the country’s development is more important than ever if the international community is to help Syria find a peaceful and democratic future.

Papers from 2008-2011 are available online now in the Syria Studies Archives, with papers from the 2012-13 volumes available in print from Lynne Reinner publishers. The latest volume will be available open access following the journal's launch.

Syria Studies is now accepting papers for the next issue, due Oct 2014.
