Talk back: Commenting on articles

You can submit comments on selected articles during the current issue’s date-span (eg Apr-Jun 2018). We are using a slightly different article template for these articles; follow the links in the paragraphs above, or see this issue’s table of contents page to pass your judgment on current articles. Comments are moderated, so will not display immediately on the page.

If you want to discuss an earlier article with us, or if you would like to submit a letter to the editor for publication, you can write the editor directly.


Peace Magazine archives: January update!

Every year on New Year’s Day, we mark the occasion by uploading all remaining articles from the issues published during the preceding calendar year. See the archive page here — we now have more than 2500 articles online, and that doesn’t even include the 1983-84 Peace Calendar (which has its own archive.)

The Peace Crossword

We have an archive of past and current Peace Crosswords on this site. Puzzles open in the free Litsoft program, which is an attractive and easy to use interface for solving puzzles. The puzzle homepage includes download links for the software: you can access it here.

If you’re a subscriber and prefer solving the puzzle on paper, you may want to use the software program to check your answers—no need for waiting until the next issue arrives in the mail!
