ISA Publications

ISA proudly publishes seven journals (FPA, GSQ, JoGSS, IPS, ISP, ISQ, and ISR), co-sponsors an eighth (II), and partners with Oxford University Press to publish the Encyclopedia of International Studies (OREIS). Our latest publication, Global Studies Quarterly, is ISA’s newest open access peer-reviewed journal.


As an ISA member, you may download, search, copy, print and save single copies of individual articles, chapters or entries in our journals for your own personal use, including your scholarly, educational or scientific research. Online access to the journals is free for ISA members.


Oxford Research Encyclopedia of International Studies (OREIS)

The ISA has joined together with Oxford University Press to revitalize the International Studies Encyclopedia as part of Oxford’s Research Encyclopedias program. The complete Encyclopedia of International Studies is now available along with new and revised articles as the Oxford Research Encyclopedia (ORE) of International Studies. Editor in Chief Nukhet Sandal and a team of academic advisors are overseeing the commissioning and ongoing publication of new content.



Governance & Process

Each of ISA's journals, as well as the Encyclopedia, are managed by their own editorial team. Broad governance of publications happens through the Publications Committee
