The Phonecian, the peer-reviewed journal of international relations and business for the Foreign Affairs Council, is now accepting articles for its inaugural issue. The Council is also searching for volunteer editors and reviewers. Submit your articles by May 30, and contact Julian Waller, Managing Editor, for details.

Call for Submissions

The Phoenician is accepting submissions from practitioners, academics, and young observers of international relations and global trade.  Contributions are welcome in a number of formats:

  • Research Papers: The journal invites contributors to submit international political or policy-relevant research papers. Submissions should be timely and include a clearly defined methodology, substantive analysis, and appropriate citations. Papers must also make a strong argument in an academic format (Chicago citation-style). Submissions should be no longer than 8,000 words.
  • Articles: The journal invites contributors to submit policy-oriented pieces which analyze timely and important issues while also providing relevant policy recommendations. Articles should be no longer than 4,000 words.
  • Comments: The journal invites contributors to submit narrative or descriptive opinion pieces that highlight recent events or issues in the foreign affairs space. Comment submissions should be no longer than 2,500 words.


Call for Volunteers

Since the Council’s creation, a steering committee has worked to design and organize The Phoenician. With that work completed, a permanent editorial board will take over the journal. The Council invites members to volunteer for the editorial board. Roles include:

  • An Editor-In-Chief;
  • Managing/Deputy Editors;
  • Volunteer Editors;
  • A Format and Layout Editor; and
  • A Webmaster.
