Journal Abstracts

We require students interested in submitting a paper for IJOIS to first submit an abstract that provides a brief overview of their paper. We are currently accepting 200-500 word abstracts for papers to be published in our 2020 publication. All abstracts must be sent to Abstracts are accepted on a rolling basis, so earlier submissions are encouraged.

Journal Submissions

If your abstract is accepted after review by our editorial board, you will be expected to follow up with a full 2000-7000 word paper that will run through our editing process and be published at the end of the semester. Paper submissions must be sent to by the date indicated if the abstract is accepted, but are also accepted on a rolling basis so earlier submissions are encouraged.  Authors may be asked to revise their papers, and submit final versions for publication towards the end of the semester.

Please see our Style Guide for more details on Journal Submissions.

Blog Submissions

We encourage blog submissions on all current events relating to international security or foreign affairs. All students can submit blog posts. Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis and require a 150-200 word “pitch” be sent to before blogs can be posted. Blogs are 500-750 words and more information will be provided after the pitch is submitted.
