Spectrum: Journal of Global Studies
Spectrum: Journal of Global Studies invites academicians and scholars to submit articles and discussion pieces to our coming issues. Spectrum: Journal of Global Studies is a peer reviewed journal run by the students of the Department of International Relations of the Middle East Technical University (METU). The journal is currently being published two times a year. All articles are subject to review by anonymous referees specified by our Editorial Board.
Spectrum endorses a multidisciplinary and critical approach to international relations. We are interested in publishing articles that relate to current theoretical disputes within international relations theory, international political economy, international political theory and historical sociology. Original empirical research on these areas is
especially welcome if it contributes and broadens the existing theoretical controversies. Papers that are primarily policy oriented however do not fit to the editorial policy of the journal.
Manuscripts may be submitted to Spectrum as a main article, discussion piece or as a review article. The approximate length required for main articles is 7,000-9,000 words, for discussion pieces 5,000 words and for review articles 4,000 words. Inclusion of an abstract of approximately 200 words with 5 key words is also required. Articles should be sent in electronic form as an MS Word file in an e-mail attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please do not submit the manuscripts in pdf format. Contributors should include a complete version of the manuscript and an anonymous version without any references to the author's identity.
