Call for Submissions

The Yale Journal of International Affairs is seeking submissions!

The Yale Journal of International Affairs (YJIA) is a graduate student-run academic journal that publishes articles, interviews, book reviews and op-eds by scholars, graduate students and policy practitioners on topics pertinent to current international affairs. Past contributors to YJIA include: Tony Blair, Paul Collier, Joseph Stiglitz, Ambassador John Negroponte, Mary Kaldor, Nancy Birdsall, and Steven Walt, among others. To view the online version of our past issues, please visit our website: http://www.yalejournal.org/.

Upcoming Issue: Spotlight on Women
In recognition of the United Nations General Assembly’s unanimous vote in July 2010 to establish the body, UN Woman, the Fall 2010 issue of the Yale Journal of International Affairs will include a special Spotlight on Women with the aim of contributing to academic and policy discussions concerning the enhancement of women’s rights around the world. In this regard, we encourage submissions that focus on an international women’s issue. Approximately half of the Fall 2010 issue will be committed to the theme of women, thus YJIA will also consider submissions on other topics of international import.

The Yale Journal of International Affairs accepts three types of submissions: 1) Articles (3,000 to 5,000 words), 2) Book reviews (2,000 words or less), and 3) Op-eds (800 words or less). Details about these submissions can be found online at: www.yalejournal.org/submissions.
When sending your submission, please adhere to the following guidelines:
Cover letter: Submissions must include a cover letter indicating the author's name, institutional affiliation, contact information (including email address and phone number), and a brief biography.
Abstract: A 100-word abstract must accompany all submissions.
Format: Submissions must conform to the conventions of the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th Edition. Citations must take the form of endnotes and be formatted according to the YJIA Style Guide, available on the YJIA website: www.yalejournal.org/submissions.
Deadline: Submissions for the upcoming issue must be submitted electronically as Microsoft Word documents to mai.truong@yale.edu no later than October 31, 2010. Authors will be notified of the status of their submissions mid-November 2010.
Please share this call for submissions with appropriate faculty, students and policy practitioners.
