Find out the latest of what your fellow internationally-minded students are talking about and learn how you can be published with the IR Review!

The International Relations Review (ISSN 2151-7398) is an academic journal fully written, edited, and published by the undergraduate students of Boston University. The IRR aims to unite the many voices within Boston University’s International Relations community to heighten awareness about pressing issues at the forefront of the international community.

The Spring Issue of the IRR is currently available across campus at locations including the Geography and Environment, International Relations, History, and  Economics departments, as well as at the College of Communication and the Howard Thurman Center. Please pick up a copy and consider submitting next year for our Fall Issue.


All Boston University students are encouraged to submit articles to the IRR. Submissions must meet requirements found in the Submission Guidelines section. While there is no further obligation after submission, authors are encouraged to continually submit pieces, building on their area of expertise. Remember that if you have a piece that is shorter in length, you can submit to the IRR Blog!

Advertising in the IR Review

The International Relations Review offers advertisers a great venue to reach students interested in pursuing international, political, and other social science careers.

For reference, the specs for the Spring 2013 edition are the following:

  • Length: 44 pages self-cover
  • Color: Full color, full bleed
  • Circulation: 1,000 copies on campus

These figures are likely to increase with forthcoming printings, as both exposure and advertising revenue will directly increase length and circulation. In-print ads will also appear online in the .pdf unless otherwise stipulated.

Figures for advertising rates are available upon request.
If you have any questions, please contact directly.
