The Review of International Studies was established in 1975 as the British Journal of International Studies and took its present title in 1981. It is the official Journal of the British International Studies Association and is published in January, April, July and October, with a biennial Special issue by Cambridge University Press (CUP) on behalf of the association. Editor Professor Kim Hutchings, London School of Economics, UK, heads up the current editorial team of Co-editors: Mathias Albert, University of Bielefeld, Germany; George Lawson, London School of Economics, UK; Jennifer Sterling-Folker, University of Connecticut, USA.
The journal serves the needs of scholars in international relations and related fields such as politics, history, law and sociology. The review publishes a significant number of high quality research articles, review articles which survey new contributions to the field, a forum section to accommodate debates and replies, and occasional interviews with leading scholars.
