New Online Publication: Stability
"Stability is a new type of journal, one intended to present scholarly research with minimal delay and in a manner accessible to policymakers and practitioners.
The journal features research into those interventions, including stabilisation, stability operations, development assistance, state building and humanitarian aid, which aim to end conflicts, prevent conflict recurrence and foster peace."If the first issue is any indication, this publication holds much promise. There are a number of insightful and interesting articles (I especially enjoyed Vanda Felbab-Brown's analysis: Slip-Sliding on a Yellow Brick Road: Stabilization Efforts in Afghanistan). All articles can be read online or downloaded in PDF format; handy for long flights.
I also heartily commend the approach the editors took, as articles are reader submitted and everything is Creative Commons licensed; this is the future of scholarly journals.
Good stuff all around, and I'm looking forward to the next issue.
