Coming Soon!

Oxford Research Encyclopedia of International Studies (OREIS)

The Encyclopedia of International Studies will soon be relaunched under the auspices of the Oxford University Press's Research Encyclopedias program. Check out the new homepage for additional information and future content.





The Encyclopedia of International Studies (formerly the ISA Compendium Project), is designed as a fundamental resource for International Studies. It comprises peer reviewed essays that assess the intellectual history of scholarship on topics of International Studies. Rigorous, comprehensive, and neutral in tone, the essays detail fruitful lines of research up to the current “state of the art,” and describe prior dead-ends. The Encyclopedia is available online for all ISA members and can also be purchased directly through Oxford University Press.
