The SAIS Review is a journal of international affairs published twice yearly by the Johns Hopkins University Press for the Johns Hopkins Foreign Policy Institute of the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, D.C. The editor welcomes articles, book reviews, and correspondence from policymakers, scholars, and other interested persons. The SAIS Review makes no effort to exact an editorial consensus. All inquiries should be directed to

Manuscript length should range from twenty to twenty-five pages (5,000 to 7,000 words), including introduction, text, conclusion, tables, figure captions/legends, and footnotes. Please include subheadings to highlight substantive divisions within the article. The SAIS Review will rely on the author to verify facts within the text. On a separate sheet please include an author identification as you would like it to appear at the foot of the title page. Please supply an abstract of 100 or fewer words with your paper. Please format the manuscript as follows:
If your manuscript were to be accepted for publication, it would be edited according to The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, and Webster's New Twentieth Century Dictionary (Unabridged). The editorial process focuses on organization, flow, clarity, and consistency but also reviews grammar, punctuation, spelling, and style. The SAIS Review aims to strike a balance between varied levels of knowledge among the journal's readership.
After your article has been edited, you will receive a printout for approval and any necessary clarifications or updates. If you would like reprints of your article, please contact the SAIS Review before the date of publication.

The SAIS Review of International Affairs welcomes original work on contemporary issues in foreign policy and international relations from scholars, policymakers, and experts from all fields. Submissions for the print journal are accepted semiannually in August and February. Adaptations or reprints of previous work will not be considered for publication in the print journal, but may be considered for publication on SAIS Review’s website (www.saisreview.org).
Submissions receive a preliminary review to determine suitability within one week of submission. Once suitability is determined, a blind first-round review is conducted by SAIS Review’s editorial staff, and the piece is returned to the author. Authors then work with SAIS Review editorial staff on further revisions until the final manuscript deadline. The final manuscript is reviewed by School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) faculty and submitted for publication.
Articles reviewed by SAIS faculty, generally six weeks after initial submission.
Eliot Cohen, Chairperson
