Realist Review Submission Guidelines
Please submit your articles to this form:
***PLEASE CONSULT THE GUIDELINES BELOW BEFORE SUBMISSION***
What We Want:
The Realist Review is primarily interested in written commentary or analysis that expresses a perspective on policies or developments in international affairs and diplomacy.
Minimum: 600 words
Maximum: 1600 words
Other forms of content, such as journalism or audio/visual media, will be accepted on a case-by-case basis according to the editor’s discretion. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
What We Don’t Want:
- Academic Papers: The writing published by the Realist Review is intended for an informed but non-academic audience. This means writers should avoid the use of obscure phrases or excessively lengthy sentences.
- Pure Memoir: Personal nonfiction is accepted on a rare basis and should include an unmistakable connection to broader regional/international issues. In general, writers should avoid using the first or second person voice in articles wherever possible.
- Partisan Advocacy – The Realist Review will not publish pieces that advocate for the election of specific political candidates or parties, nor will it entertain personal attacks on policymakers.
- Remain communicative with the editorial staff
- Quotations, statistics and all other measurable claims should be hyperlinked to a reputable source.
- Submissions should be free, for the most part, of grammatical and spelling mistakes.
- Journalistic pieces should abide by standards explained in http://handbook.reuters.com/index.php?title=The_Essentials_of_Reuters_sourcing .
- We intend to publish work that represents your unique voice and perspective. The Editorial Team will use its discretion to decide if a proposed article is worth publication and what revisions are necessary.
