News and Updates from FPA

ISA Headquarters posted on November 01, 2013 16:09

Melissa Labonte and Kendall Stiles will be completing their service as editors of the IO Section’s contribution to the ISA Compendium at the annual meetings in 2014 and the section is seeking proposals for new editors.

At this point, the IO Section’s contribution consists of twenty-two 10,000 word literature review essays on a very wide range of topics. Some were published in the print version of the compendium while others have appeared in the semi-annual updates to the on-line version.

The task of the incoming editor(s) will be to add to this material by bringing several essays to completion through the revision process, updating existing essays with new material regarding current debates in the literature, and identifying new topics and authors. Of central importance is the identification of reviewers for essays and a willingness to guide the review process.

Prospective editors should be acquainted with the substance and style of the Compendium and be willing to serve for several years. Institutional support, while helpful, is not required.

Candidates should submit a letter of intent and curriculum vitae to Kendall Stiles, Chair of the International Organization Section, via email ( no later than January 1, 2014 for full consideration.
