This issue of International Area Studies Review (Vol. 14, No. 4) concludes my first volume. The partnership forged between Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS) and the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) has been a success.
With the end of the year, I am extremely pleased to announce that Sage Publications will be publishing IASR starting in 2012 with volume fifteen. HUFS and Sage signed a contract in October 2011. HUFS continues to own
the journal while Sage will handle the production and distribution of the journal. By joining the Sage family of journals, IASR massively increases its presence and visibility. IASR will be part of Sage’s package of social science journals available to every major university library in the world. I am happy to have Sage join the HUFS-PRIO team.
International Area Studies Review (IASR) is the quarterly peer-reviewed publication of the Center for International Area Studies (CIAS) at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS), Seoul and the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), and Sage Publishers.
IASR publishes high quality theoretical, analytical, and empirical works on international politics, economics, culture, sociology, law and the arts contributing to the development of international area studies. IASR actively encourages both theory-oriented and applied research to help close the gap between pure theory and practice. IASR stands alone as the area studies journal that is truly global in perspective. IASR operates a strictly double-blind peer review process in which the reviewer’s name is withheld from the author and the author’s name from the reviewer.
IASR publishes the following article types:
Regular Research Article: Each article should be between 8,000 and 10,000 words long. IASR features country and regional studies from around the world. We are also open to global comparative analysis. IASR publishes articles featuring cutting-edge statistical or game theoretic analyses, as well as ethnographic or historical case studies. We welcome submissions from Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, Sociology, and other relevant disciplines.
Data Feature Articles: These articles introduce a new dataset or a significant revision of an existing one. Data Feature Articles describe a new dataset, with an emphasis on showing how the new data can make a genuine contribution to area studies, for instance by pointing to results that are significantly different from previously published work. A Data Feature Article is less than 6,000 words in length and is double-blind peer-reviewed.
Review Essays: A Review Essay synthesizes ‘state of the art’ research and can be about several books, several articles, or a combination of the two. The focus should be thematic rather than on a small number of books or articles. These essays will be double-blind peer-reviewed. They will be no longer than 5,000 words. Each issue of the IASR will not contain more than one Review Essay.
As of today, all manuscripts to IASR should be submitted via SAGE Track:
On behalf of the Editorial Board and Management of IASR, I wish you a happy new year.
