About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The Tulane Journal of International Affairs is a newly formed undergraduate research journal at Tulane University. Publishing once a year, this nonprofit organization promotes outstanding undergraduate work relating to its three sections: International Security, International Political Economy, and Human Rights.

Our staff evaluates academic submissions through a blind review process, eventually narrowing down four papers per section. We then submit our recommendations to a panel of professors, with one faculty member representing each of the following institutions and departments: the Murphy Institute, the Payson Center, the Stone Center for Latin American Studies, the Department of Political Science, and the Department of History.

The faculty advisory panel then recommends two papers per section to publish in the spring. The work featured on the front page of the TJIA will be the research paper receiving the most votes from the panel and our staff.
