Readable from beginning to end, GPN is like a magazine you want to read regularly, for the most part without references. You will have in hand first of all a magazine-like issue you may want to read on your laptop or print out, to have in your hands on an airplane, at your bedside, or other favored reading settings. Each article or story is also designed for you to print. If you are a high school or college instructor, you may want to print out selected articles for teaching, group discussion or references. You will also find that a number of articles are also published in a PDF
format which gives full references and/or reference notes, and you can
click to the PDF version easily.
Selected articles in the magazine will also give an option of a professional journal format by going to a FULL TEXT WITH COMPLETE REFERENCES.
As noted, articles in the magazine that are original professional works with fuller documentation are reprinted in PDF with a complete set of endnotes and reference notes.
Some articles will also enjoy additional in-depth interpretive scholarly reports, e.g., a Timeline for a genocidal process and event, classification in a Multiple Classification of Genocide or in a Genocide Early Warning System, or specialist commentaries and blogs.

Goals of GPN Genocide Prevention Now
The Institute on the Holocaust and Genocide, Jerusalem produces GPN under a major three-year grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York to produce an innovative website devoted to all aspects of the study of genocide and devoted in particular to genocide intervention and prevention.
GPN is intended to become the most comprehensive information source about genocide in the world. It will strive to provide an authoritative world center for up-to-date information on ongoing genocidal events as well as on developing threats of mass killing, including special attention to recognized warning signs and incitement to mass killing by leaders, governments, media, and terrorist organizations. Along with coverage of news events and analyses of events, we publish outstanding new breakthrough studies of genocide and genocide prevention, including a new approach to mapping Timelines for genocidal events, and new measurement techniques for evaluating ongoing incitement to genocide developed by Prof. Elihu Richter, former director of GPN’s World Genocide Situation Room.
GPN also provides a comprehensive review of the emerging discipline of genocide studies and its prevention. Genocide studies is a profoundly interdisciplinary field, so that interest in the website will come from many people in a wide variety of fields and facets of life in the academic world. Today there are genocide scholars and groups of researchers in all of the following disciplines and more: History, Peace Studies, Economics, International Affairs, Diplomatic Studies, Criminology, Philosophy, Political Science, Military Studies, Journalism, Sociology, Education, Social Work, Medicine and Public Health, Psychiatry, Anthropology, Law, Forensics, Theatre Arts, Literature, Communications, Conflict Resolution, Gender Studies, Intercultural Studies, Religion, Visual Communications and Film, Security Studies, Global Affairs, Fine Arts, Culture/Dance Studies. A steadily growing number of universities around the world are also beginning to offer degree programs specifically in Holocaust and genocide studies.
At the same time, GPN is designed to draw the attention of a large general audience of concerned peoples around the world, including the many ethnic groups concerned with the history of genocide of their own people. These groups especially will naturally be drawn to track the treatment of the genocide of their people, which they will find that GPN treats always in a respectful, sensitive manner. The web site is designed to be appealing and friendly to a broad viewing public, at all times conveying the message, to all of us, that…
The journalistic or writing goal of GPN is to produce a reader-friendly, interesting magazine-like reading experience, similar to reading the finest quality news magazines. Thus, even learned and breakthrough articles will be presented in a flowing format, with language level edited to be broadly appealing rather than academically heavy, while at the same time important articles like these, such as a legal review which cites cases and legal references, all accompanied by a pdf version which gives the interested reader a complete academic document with all sources.
While we are publishing in a web site format, it is our intention to retain a traditional issue-format for GPN.
