The International Studies Association (ISA) and Oxford University Press (OUP) are pleased to announce the forthcoming Oxford Research Encyclopedia of International Studies ( 

Under the leadership of Editor in Chief Renée Marlin-Bennett, this joint publishing project will revitalize The International Studies Encyclopedia as a part of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia (ORE) program. Dr. Marlin-Bennett and a team of academic advisors are presently reviewing existing articles in the Encyclopedia as well as commissioning entirely new content to form a leading-edge, continuously updated, digital encyclopedia in International Studies.

About the Oxford Research Encyclopedia (ORE) Program:

The Oxford Research Encyclopedias are a major initiative from Oxford University Press to address the changing needs of university-level digital research by delivering authoritative overview articles that provide readers with everything they need to know about an unfamiliar topic in a compact, easily digestible format.  Updated monthly, each ORE will grow alongside the field it covers. The goal is to give readers a sophisticated grounding on a topic of research and to point to other relevant sources.

“ISA’s vision for the Research Encyclopedia of International Studies as a high-level, peer-reviewed, regularly updated digital publication is perfectly attuned to the aims of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia Program,” says Damon Zucca, Scholarly Reference Publisher at OUP, “and we are thrilled to be working together to breathe new life into this important reference work.” 

The International Studies Encyclopedia, which is now published online by Oxford University Press, remains freely available to ISA members, and can be accessed via the ISA members portal:
