The Carleton Review of International Affairs (CRIA) is a peer-reviewed academic journal that publishes work by undergraduate students related to international affairs. Undergraduate students are invited to submit papers for consideration for publication in Volume 4 of CRIA, which is to be published in April 2017. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to demonstrate their research and writing skills and to help contribute to an inter-disciplinary study of international affairs.
The Co-Editors welcome any inquiries regarding the suitability of a paper for submission. All submissions should include an abstract, personal information including your full name, program, university, and year of study.
All papers should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline of January 20, 2017.
The Co-Editors of CRIA recommend that students submit research papers completed at the senior level of study for consideration. Papers may either be original compositions or ones have been completed previously for another course. Papers from any discipline within the arts and social sciences will be accepted for review provided they are related to international affairs. While this requirement can be interpreted broadly, papers on the domestic politics of Canada will not be accepted unless a connection to Canadian foreign affairs is demonstrated. Papers should be approximately 3000 and 10 000 words in length, be submitted in .doc or .docx format, and employ the use Chicago style footnote citations.
Following reception of papers prior to the deadline of January 20, 2017, the Co-Editors will undertake an initial review to decide which papers will be passed on for peer review. Students will be informed of the status of their paper. A double-blind peer review board comprised of graduate students will then make a recommendation to the Co-Editors to reject, accept for publication, or return papers for further editing by the author. Papers which fall in the final category will be accepted for resubmission and further review provided the authors make changes in accordance with the recommendations of the peer reviewers.
