From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Peace Magazine is a Canadian magazine on disarmament and peacebuilding issues, published by Canadian Disarmanent Information Service (CANDIS).

The magazine published monthly from March to December 1985; bimonthly from January-February 1986 to May-June 1999; and quarterly since July-September 1999. There has been formal and informal cooperation with other Canadian and international peace organizations throughout the magazine's history, and since 1993 the magazine has included a section produced in collaboration with Science for Peace.

Peace Magazine was launched in 1985 as a continuation of an earlier CANDIS publication, The Peace Calendar, which appeared monthly between February 1983 and January 1985. Originally a simple listings sheet for Toronto-area peace events, The Peace Calendar had expanded into a 12-page tabloid with articles and analysis in addition to Canada-wide listings in the period immediately before the Peace Magazine launch.

Peace Magazine was one of the first Canadian magazines to be produced with desktop publishing software. Its website at www.peacemagazine.org, online since 1997, contains HTML archives of all articles published previous to the current calendar year.

The magazine has had a strong editorial emphasis on democracy, human rights, and the technical aspects of disarmament. Its writers are roughly equally distributed between activists and academics, with considerable overlap between these two spheres.
