Scope and Policy
Contexto Internacional is committed to publishing analytically strong and theoretically original scholarship in International Relations and related fields. Contexto is particularly suited for innovative, investigative and exploratory articles that provide insight into the realities and situated knowledges that stem from and around the Global South.
Contexto Internacional is published in English three times a year. It invites submissions from researchers and practitioners from all over the globe. The journal accepts research articles, review essays, book reviews as well as proposals for special issues. Contexto Internacional particularly welcomes proposals for special issues on themes relevant to the problems and political processes affecting the Global South and to the development of a more diverse understanding of International Relations.
Contexto Internacional adopts a rigorous double-blind peer-reviewing policy. The response from the first round of reviews will normally be provided within 120 days from the submission.
Authors should hold a PhD or be enrolled in a PhD program in International Relations, Political Science or related field at the time of submission. The editors will reject manuscripts before review if they are not suitable for the journal, for example, because of low adherence to Contexto Internacional’s editorial policy and scope, inadequate or imprecise analytical development, inconsistent formatting or non-observance of author guidelines and poor writing style (this list is not exhaustive).
