Oxford Research Encyclopedia of International Studies

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. Visitors to the ORE site can now browse the full text of new, revised, and classic articles.
