International Review

The University of Florida International Review is a student-run and student-edited quarterly journal of international affairs. The journal, with the support of the Political Science Department at the University of Florida, seeks to offer an outlet for students to discuss the issues of today that have the potential to change the realities of tomorrow.

The journal is an online publication that will allow students to contribute to debate across campus and around the state of Florida. Issues will include analytical papers that will delve deep into an issue of international importance. Issues of the journal will also include debate essays that will offer a potential solution to a problem of international significance or concern. Also present in each issue will be an in-depth look into an issue or region of global importance and a discussion with an expert of that issue/region.

The UFIR is an online student-edited journal of international affairs that, with the support of the Political Science Department, seeks to offer an outlet for students to discuss the issues of today that have the potential to change the realities of tomorrow.

We are seeking articles in which writers take a position on a notable issue pertaining to world affairs and reinforce that position with argument and evidence. You can use previously written papers from International Relations, Comparative Politics, or History classes (as long as they meet the international affairs criteria), or you can compose your own article if you wish.

While there are no set limits on length of articles, it is recommended that articles fall somewhere in the range of 4 to 12 pages (1200 to 3000 words) in length. Submissions should include citations whenever outside material is incorporated into the article; however, the use of arguments or support from previously published sources is not required for your work to be considered for publication.

In addition to the article, please include a brief (2 to 3 sentences) biography of the author that includes major, class standing, and any other information showing interest and knowledge of the subject.

All submissions and questions should be directed to the Editor-in-Chief.

Application for Associate Editor Position can be found here.
