CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Journal of Public and International Affairs

The Journal of Public and International Affairs (JPIA) is the premier student-run journal of policy studies. Now entering its 28th year of publication, JPIA is a joint publication of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. The Journal seeks to publish both scholarly and expository articles on a diverse range of subjects, covering the areas of international affairs, development studies, and domestic policy.

JPIA is an annual publication, accepting submissions from any advanced student in the field from an accredited institution. Submissions are reviewed in a blind screening process by an editorial board composed of students at Princeton and by contributing editors from the other APSIA schools.

Graduate and professional students from APSIA schools are encouraged to submit policy papers and articles on contemporary issues. JPIA seeks pieces that are not only outstanding in their research quality, but also include specific policy recommendations.


For the 28th edition of the journal, JPIA began accepting submissions on November 30, 2016. The submission deadline is now Friday, February 10, 2017, midnight EST. This is an extension from the original deadline of Friday, January 27, 2017.
