International Relations is explicitly pluralist in outlook. Editorial policy favours variety in both subject-matter and method, at a time when so many academic journals are increasingly specialised in scope, and sectarian in approach. We welcome articles or proposals from all perspectives and on all subjects pertaining to international relations: law, economics, ethics, strategy, philosophy, culture, environment, and so on, in addition to more mainstream conceptual work and policy analysis. We believe that such pluralism is in great demand by the academic and policy communities and the interested public.

Each volume will normally contain peer-reviewed research articles, and a mixture of review essays, interviews, debates and forums. Special issues will be published, and we welcome ideas.

"International Relations is one of the few outstanding journals in our field." Robert Gilpin, Eisenhower Professor of Public and International Affairs, Emeritus, Princeton University

"International Relations is emerging as one of the front-ranking journals in the field - at the cutting edge of existing debates and helping to set future research agendas." Richard Little, Professor of International Politics, University of Bristol

"International Relations is a terrific journal: full of interesting, innovative and insightful pieces. Congratulations: at last, something in the discipline that one looks forward to reading." Peter Vale, Nelson Mandela Chair of Politics, Rhodes University, South Africa.

"International Relations has established itself as one of the top journals in the field. It features debates on both the classic questions and the most contentious contemporary issues. It should be read not only by scholars, but by everyone with a serious interest in international affairs." Ole R. Holsti, George V Allen Professor Emeritus, Department of Political Science, Duke University

"An indispensable resource - International Relations has hosted many of the best debates in international theory and comprehensively presented some of the globe's most significant policy challenges" Michael Doyle, Harold Brown Professor of U.S. Foreign and Security Policy, Columbia University
