The Journal of Conventional Weapons Destruction is a forum for international discourse on issues relating to post-conflict environments and explosive hazards clearance for the humanitarian mine action (HMA) and conventional weapons destruction (CWD) community. Its purpose is to act as a conduit through which HMA/CWD operators—including nongovernmental organizations, governments/militaries, academics and practitioners—present and share information on pertinent issues, practices, experiences, case studies, and new technologies/methodologies in the HMA and CWD field. Since its first publication in 1997, The Journal continues to function as an historical resource for the community of practice, presenting a chronological reflection on the developments within the HMA/CWD.
The Journal was first published in 1997, and is the longest continuous source of information on CWD and mine action in the world. The Journal has a print circulation of more than 2,400 with two-thirds of The Journal's subscription base outside of the United States. The publication is read, in print or online, in more than 160 countries.
