The Journal of New Zealand Studies

The Journal of New Zealand Studies is a peer-reviewed multidisciplinary journal published by the Stout Research Centre for New Zealand Studies. From 2014 onwards the JNZS will be published on-line twice a year, in June and December.

Prospective articles are welcome from any discipline.  They should have a New Zealand focus, or be comparative with a strong New Zealand element.  All submissions go through a process of anonymous peer review.

2014 Call for Submissions

In 2014 the two issues of the journal will be as follows:

2014, 1: we are interested in receiving submissions on the theme of 'memory', a rather neglected dimension within New Zealand scholarship, but other submissions on any topic are also welcome.  Submission deadline for this issue: 14 February 2014.

2014, 2: in the context of First World War commemorations and the forthcoming Stout Centre conference (in association with the Ministry for Culture and Heritage), this issue of the journal will be on the theme of 'Rethinking War'. Submission deadline for this issue: 18 July 2014.

Note: the process of peer review and revision can be protracted and the editor cannot guarantee publication of an accepted article in a specific issue of the journal.
