Submission Guidelines

The Georgetown Journal of International Affairs (the Journal) explores the major puzzles of world affairs through thoughtful, assertive discourse. Featuring authors who draw from a wide spectrum of experience, the Journal integrates the diverse factors driving international affairs into a canvas that captures the complexity of the global landscape. Above all, the Journal is forward-looking and aims to reveal new angles and insights.

All Journal articles must have a policy recommendation or implication and be written for a general audience.

Note: The majority of our authors have obtained a Ph.D. in their fields of expertise. However, we are also interested in publishing those with equivalent personal or professional exposure to an international issue, particularly in a policymaking or other direct, first-hand role. Please feel free to reach out to us at gjia@georgetown.edu with any questions regarding author eligibility.
