The International History Review

The International History Review is the only English-language quarterly devoted entirely to the history of international relations and the history of international thought. Since 1979 the Review has established itself as one of the premier History journals in the world, read and regularly cited by both political scientists and historians. The Review serves as a bridge between historical research and the study of international relations. The Review publishes articles exploring the history of international relations and the history of international thought. The editors particularly welcome submissions that explore the history of current conflicts and conflicts of current interest; the development of international thought; diplomatic history; the history of international relations theory; and the history of international organisations and global governance. The Review publishes articles, review articles and book reviews. Articles should be no more than 12,000 words (including footnotes), while review articles should not exceed 6,000 words. Shorter articles are welcome. The editors also welcome proposals for special issues or sections. Book reviews should be between 500 and 1,000 words, with the final length for each review being decided by the book reviews editor.

Five issues a year.
