About the Journal

The Interdisciplinary Journal of International Studies (IJIS) is an academic space where students critically engage with theories and issue areas in the social sciences and humanities in an interdisciplinary perspective. Every Issue invites contributions on topical themes (including, but not restricted to, development, globalisation, international relations, political economy, regional integration, refugeehood, migration, culture, and history). It welcomes theoretical, methodological, conceptual, or empirical papers.

The IJIS is an independent student-driven and faculty-referred academic journal based at Aalborg University, Denmark. It was established in 2002 on the initiative of the Study Board of Master Programmes in Development & International Relations (DIR) and European Studies (ES). Presently, the journal is supported by the Study Board for International Affairs under the Department of Politics and Society.


The deadline for expression of interest to the current issue is the 30th of September and is to be submitted by mail to Eveliina Viivi Lepistö ( and/or Ariadni Zormpa (

Please send us your affiliation with the Department and a first abstract for your article by the 30th of September.

The full submission of the articles (maximum length 4,000 words) or essays (maximum length 2,500 words) is expected on the 31st of October. Submissions to the IJIS are subject to a peer-review process to ensure that papers for publications have original or sufficient contribution to scholarship. Each submitted manuscript is evaluated on the following basis:

  • the originality and relevance of its contribution to the field 
  • the soundness of its theory and methodology given the topic
  • the coherence of its analysis
  • its ability to communicate to readers (grammar and style)

Publication:  We expect to publish the next Issue of IJIS by December 2022.


We also strongly encourage students to submit reviews of relevant literature, e.g. of books, articles, journals, or other academically relevant knowledge production (podcasts, magazines, social media communities etc.) that you believe should come to the attention of other students. The reviews will not be subjected to the standard peer-review process, and all reviews will be published in the online edition.

Submit a maximum of 500 words, clear reference, theme, authors and department affiliation.

We look forward to receiving many great contributions to this IJIS edition .
