UBC Journal of International Affairs opportunities: Call for Submissions

Submit your papers to the Journal of International Affairs

The Journal of International Affairs (JIA) is a student-run, peer- and faculty-reviewed undergraduate publication. Since 1985, the JIA has showcased distinguished papers written by students across a range of faculties and departments. Contributing to the JIA affords students an invaluable opportunity to have their work published early in their academic careers.

We are looking for research papers written on global issues, from across disciplines. All papers will be considered on their merits, and the 5-10 top papers will be published in the 2018 JIA.

All papers must meet the following criteria to be considered for publication:

*  Must be the original, unpublished work of the author

*  Must include a title, the author’s name and year, and the name of the course for which the paper was written

*  Must have received a grade of 80% percent or higher

*  Must be in .doc format, roughly 1500-3500 words in length, and include citations as well as a full bibliography

Authors are strongly encouraged to review their papers based on any feedback they may have received. Staff editors will also work with authors to refine and improve their papers before publication. Detailed submission criteria, FAQs and past editions can be found on our website at www.ubcjia.com<http://www.ubcjia.com/>.

Please send your submissions to Editors-in-Chief Maahin Ahmed and Verna Yam at irsa.jiaeditor@gmail.com<mailto:irsa.jiaeditor@gmail.com> by December 23, 2017. We look forward to receiving your papers.
