Dear authors,

Perspectives on Global Issues is calling for submissions for the SPRING 2017 edition!

Submissions for our print journal will be accepted until Monday, March 20th.

All submissions will be blind-peer reviewed and edited by our editorial staff to ensure high quality.

We publish 10-15 articles in the journal twice yearly. Please see criteria and how to structure a submission email below.

Being published in an academic journal is an excellent asset to highlight for potential employers and educational opportunities.

If your piece is selected for publication you will be notified with details.
