Scope/Description:

Founded in 1837 World Affairs is a quarterly journal showcasing provocative and original research in international and current affairs. For decades it has been renowned for publishing articles on policy as it is practicedpieces that excite controversy and encourage debate. As of 2016 World Affairs longstanding tradition as a leader of political debate continues in its new and more academic incarnation. Articles should adhere to the high standards of an academic journal in the depth and rigor of their research. They should nevertheless actively bridge the academic and public spheres and promote stimulating conversation between them. To that end its timely articles must be accessible to a generalist audience and framed with that audience in mind. Its jargonfree studies should also make practical recommendations to an audience of policy makers.World Affairs welcomes submissions in politics policy and current affairs from an international perspective. Areas include but are not restricted to economics commercetrade public administration diplomacy public opinion current affairs defense security foreign policy international relationsaffairs international law regionalization transnational social and political issues international political economy the global world order international regulation environmental issues immigration and development. We encourage topicality and actively invite interdisciplinarity. No methodology is preferred though the underpinning framework of the authors argument should be immediately explicit to readers.World Affairs will consider articles of 9000 words or less referenced in Chicago Style. Articles undergo a rigorous doubleblind peer review with final publication subject to the approval of the Editor.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?


III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.
