The Journal of Inter – Regional Studies: Regional and Global Perspectives (JIRS) is an English language open-access peer-reviewed academic journal.
The journal aims to promote area studies or the study of regions (e.g. Asia, North and South America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East), inter-regional relations, and global governance. We welcome papers based on theoretical perspectives and/or empirical research from researchers around the world from a myriad of academic fields, including International Relations, Political Science, Social Science, History, Development Studies, and Anthropology. The journal will be published once a year. In principle, all papers published in this journal will be uploaded to the open-access website, Waseda Repository, and the website of Waseda ORIS. These papers will be uploaded to the website once they are accepted and completed. Hardcopies of the journal will also be disseminated to relevant academic and research institutes within and outside of Waseda University. This journal publishes original peer-reviewed research articles, research notes, and book reviews.
If you are interested in making a submission, please refer to the information below as well as the Style Guide for Authors and the Internal Regulations on Submissions to Waseda ORIS
