Publishing with GPR

Global Politics Review is a bi-annual e-journal published in April and in October. Prior to any publication, GPR will hand out a Call for Papers on this website. Submissions can be sent all year round, but priority will be given to those made for the latest Call for Papers. Global Politics Review adheres to a double-blind peer-reviewing policy where the identity of the reviewer and the author are concealed from both parties.
Articles are judged on the basis of originality, argumentation, and prose. Editors reserve the right to make changes to the articles during the editing process. The editorial board assumes no obligation regarding publication. Submissions that do not adhere to the guidelines will be rejected.
