Call for Papers

The Journal of International Organizations Studies (JIOS) is a peer-reviewed journal that seeks to enhance understanding of international organizations. JIOS’ mission is to support innovative and interdisciplinary approaches in the study of international organizations. We particularly welcome papers that explore new grounds and transcend the traditional perspective of international organizations as merely the sum of its members and their policies. The journal's focus is the analysis and develop-ment of IO specific concepts, theories and methodologies. JIOS aims to work across disciplines and therefore especially welcomes meta-disciplinary analyses that will provide a foundation for communication across academic fields and disciplines.

JIOS publishes the full range of theoretical approaches, while theoretical and empirical studies will be hosted in equal proportion. JIOS welcomes scholarship about specific organizations as well as the phenomenon of international organizations, their structures and processes, and their place in the inter-national community.

JIOS publishes three types of articles:

  • research papers (8,000 – 10,000 words, incl. footnotes and references)
  • reviews of literature or disciplinary approaches (book reviews: 800 - 1,200 words, subject reviews: 2,000 – 3,000, incl. footnotes and references)
  • "Insider's View" (3,000 – 7,000 words, incl. footnotes and references): contribu-tions from practitioners on the inner workings of international organizations.

Published twice annually online and print-on-demand.

Recent highlights include:

  • The Organizational Turn in International Organization Theory (David Ellis)
  • NATO and the United Nations: Debates and Trends in Institutional Coordination Kent J. Kille and Ryan C. Hendrickson
  • An Organizational Theory of Internation-al Institutions (Christopher Balding and Daniel Wehrenfennig )
