    International Peace & Security

    NEW YORK, NEW YORK — Established in 2010, the International Security Studies Forum (ISSF) is a list-serv to increase the speed of communication and debate in the security studies field. ISSF engages in four activities: publishing roundtable book reviews; publishing shorter reviews of journal articles; organizing discussions among scholars of issues that are germane to the field but not often addressed in the print media; and encouraging scholars to post their own comments, questions, and ideas. This has the effect of connecting the security studies community, promoting real-time scholarly debate, and ultimately increasing the likelihood that this debate can impact the development of current policy.
