CALL FOR PAPERS: New Perspectives – Interdisciplinary Journal of Central and Eastern European Politics & International Relations

CALL FOR PAPERS: New PerspectivesInterdisciplinary Journal of Central and Eastern European Politics & International Relations

New Perspectives seeks to provide interdisciplinary insight into the politics and international relations of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Building on the success of its forerunner, Perspectives (founded in 1993), the journal has recently been transformed in order to keep pace with developments in international political research. New Perspectives seeks to publish original, interpretive research that is: methodologically systematic, rigorous and reflexive; theoretically innovative and compelling; or empirically ground-breaking.

They interpret the borders of ‘Central and Eastern Europe’ broadly and plurally. They therefore encourage submissions that their author’s consider as falling roughly within or being related to this region, while retaining the right to reject manuscripts that we feel fall outside of our scope. New Perspectives seeks to attract submissions which address political aspects of regional affairs and/or their connections to the wider world, from the fields of: International Relations, Political Science, Security Studies and International Political Sociology; International Political Economy; Geography; Sociology; Anthropology; History; Cultural Studies and Legal Studies.

Submissions

New Perspectives publishes three types of articles:

  • Research Articles are full-length papers that make an original contribution to research and are the main type of article that we seek. New Perspectives particularly seeks research articles that are methodologically systematic and reflexive; theoretically innovative and compelling; or empirically ground-breaking. Research Articles are normally between 8,000 and 10,000 words, including footnotes and references, although the maximum length including all notes and references is 12,000 words.
  • Discussions/ Analytical Essays integrate, synthesise or juxtapose scholarship, delineate or develop scholarly debates, or identify new directions in interdisciplinary research on the politics and international relations of Central and Eastern Europe. We encourage discussion papers that are between 10,000 and 12,000 words, although the maximum length including all notes and references is 15,000 words.
  • Review Essays, which New Perspectives publishes fewer of, contextualise several recently published or re-published volumes (3-5 titles per Review Essay) in relation to each other as well as in relation to wider academic scholarship and public political debate and discussion by identifying and critically engaging key themes and strands of thought. Review essays should be between 3,500 and 4,500 words, with a maximum length of 5,000 words including all notes and references.

All articles should respect the formal structure and all requirements stated in the “Information for Authors” (http://perspectives.iir.cz/home/information/authors) section of the New Perspectives website.
