These articles address current or recent policy debates – broadly conceived – highlighting the degree to which these debates are or ought to be informed by existing scholarly literature and contemporary research. 

Pedagogical Analyses

These articles present and analyze innovative teaching practices in the field of international studies in colleges and universities from around the world.

Visions of the Discipline

These articles offer insights into current trends in international studies in the academic and practitioner communities. 

Pieces of Interest to the International Studies Profession

These articles deal with topics such as publishing in international studies, the academic and nonacademic job market and professional development.

The editors of ISP encourage submissions that bridge different academic disciplines, the academic and policymaking worlds, and the teacher-student gap globally-conceived. 

Submissions from traditionally underrepresented regions and perspectives are particularly welcomed.

Manuscripts of original research that lack a primary emphasis on informed policymaking, broadly conceived, or pedagogical analysis are not suitable for ISP and should not be submitted for review. 

The journal does not publish announcements or book reviews of any sort.
