For the Web Edition:
The International Affairs Review is currently accepting article submissions for the website. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis.
To be considered for the website, articles must:
- Be written by current or recent graduate students.
- Address a current international affairs policy issue or an ongoing analytical debate about international affairs. [Note: articles on domestic policy issues, e.g. U.S. cyber infrastructure or domestic politics in Turkey, will be considered so long as they contain explicit tie-in to international affairs.]
- Articulate a clear position on the issue and conclude with the formulation of plausible policy recommendations or analytical conclusions to inform debate. Be provocative!
- Be approximately 800 words in length; MAXIMUM 1,100 words--we will work with you to consolidate if length becomes a problem. Additionally, we will consider serialized or multi-part series.
- Include a short biographical statement about the author and the author's full contact information.
- Be single-spaced and in .doc or .docx format.
- Contain adequate sourcing in the form of inline hyperlinks, which we will vet. Check out recent submissions to get a good idea of the citation standard we adhere to.
