The International Spectator - About

Aims and scope
The International Spectator aims to provide academics, practitioners, opinion- and decision-makers, as well as interested laymen, with thought-provoking, analytically sound, theoretically informed and policy-oriented research articles, opinion essays and book reviews on foreign policy issues. Topics cover the entire spectrum of international affairs from ongoing international politics, economics and security affairs to pressing questions on the international agenda such as climate and energy, global migration and development.

Peer review and publication process
The two kinds of articles published – opinion essays and research articles – undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial in-house screening by the journal's editors and double-blind anonymous refereeing by at least two independent, expert reviewers.
