About JIOS:

JIOS is a new, peer-reviewed journal that seeks to encourage the creation of a distinct field of international organization studies. It aims to provide a window into the state of the art in international organization research, and function as a platform for interdisciplinary dialog on international organizations.

JIOS' mission is to support innovative approaches to the study of international organizations. We particularly welcome papers that explore new grounds and transcend the traditional perspective of international organizations as merely the sum of its members and their policies.

JIOS is seeking contributions for its 2015 issues. If you would like to contribute, please visit: for more information or email the editors at
