Journal of Genocide Research
Journal of Genocide Research promotes an interdisciplinary and comparative approach to the study of genocide. Genocide has reared its head numerous times throughout the twentieth century. Genocidal thought and action have found many opportunities to assault targeted groups and endanger their existence. These repeated attempts at annihilation pose some of the more perplexing questions of the modern age warranting systematic, scholarly investigation. Journal of Genocide Research devotes itself exclusively to focusing on this troublesome phenomenon that promises to re-occur well into the twenty-first century.

Genocide Studies and Prevention
Genocide Studies and Prevention is an international, interdisciplinary journal dedicated to understanding the phenomenon of genocide, researching it, and sharing the findings as widely as possible so as to produce constructive results.

Holocaust and Genocide Studies
The major forum for scholarship on the Holocaust and other genocides, Holocaust and Genocide Studies is an international journal featuring research articles, interpretive essays, and book reviews in the social sciences and humanities. It is the principal publication to address the issue of how insights into the Holocaust apply to other genocides.
