The Journal of Peace, Prosperity and Freedom was a worthwhile experiment. It allowed me to bring together the top libertarian/classical liberal academics in Australia, as well as a few from the United States and Europe, to advance knowledge in the social sciences.
The three volumes published between 2012-2014 were a labour of love since each resulted in a financial loss. However the interest in contributing articles was strong. I always had a high quality to choose from when compiling each volume and had to reject articles that did not fit the theme and purpose of the journal. One of the published contributors - Alex Robson - is now an advisor to the Prime Minister of Australia, which gives you some indication of the calibre of the authors!
As I am currently a poor graduate student it is not realistic to continue with this project while incurring a financial loss on each issue. I do plan to return to the journal once I finish my Masters and am able to dedicate time to securing funding. However at this stage the best use of my time is in publishing my own articles in established journals rather than editing others' articles for the JPPF.
If you would like to pledge to contribute financially to the journal, please visit our donate page. In the meantime old volumes are available free online for your perusual.
Thanks to all the readers, contributors and peer-reviewers.
