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. The publication is 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 functions as a platform to share new ideas, successes, and lessons learned, as well as a historical resource for the community of practice, presenting a chronological reflection on the developments within HMA/CWD.

The Journal was first published in 1997, and is the longest continuous source of information mine action in the world. The Journal has a print circulation of more than 2,400 with two-thirds of The Journal's subscription based outside of the United States. The publication is read in print and online in more than 160 countries.

The Journal is produced by the Center for International Stabilization and Recovery at James Madison University, and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.
