The Review

The Georgetown Security Studies Review, or simply “the Review”, is a bi-annual publication of formal papers edited by an academic peer-review process. The mission of the Review is to contribute to foreign policy debate by exposing readers to a wide array of perspectives on both current and historical international affairs issues. All articles in the Review are peer-reviewed and edited by members of the GSSR Editorial Board and staff. In addition to full-length peer-reviewed articles, each issue of the Review can include literature reviews, letters to and from the editors, and op-ed pieces. Articles must not simply be extended class essays. Grounded in existing literature, an article must outline a testable thesis and/or a precise methodology to justify its claims.

Article submissions to the Review should be between 3,000 and 10,000 words and must use Chicago Style endnotes. Book and article reviews should range from 1,000 to 2,000 words and contain a concise summary of the book or article examined and analysis of the work’s strengths and/or weaknesses.

All submissions selected for publication will be edited, peer-reviewed, and subsequently approved by author(s). The GSSR uses an anonymous editing and peer-review process in which only the Editor-in-Chief will know the author’s name until publication.

Publication Schedule

The GSSR accepts submissions to the Review on a rolling basis, however all submissions must be received by the deadline to be considered for the next volume; the Editor-in-Chief announces the deadlines for Review submissions each semester via email to SSP students and publicly on the GSSR website and associated social media. The submission deadline for the GSSR Vol. 11, Iss. 2 is Monday November 13, 2023 at 11:59PM EST.
