World Policy Journal Writer's Guidlines - World Policy Institute


World Policy Journal, celebrating its 25th anniversary in Fall 2008, is the flagship publication of the World Policy Institute. The Journal’s pages are filled with articles written in a lively, non-academic style, coming from strong points of view that transcend the traditional foreign-versus-domestic policy divide, reflecting WPI's "world" perspective. WPJ's progressive, global outlook challenges conventional wisdom. It is distinguished by its allergy to dogma and willingness to include a range of voices chosen for the quality of their ideas and analysis, regardless of their writers'  pedigrees.


It runs policy articles that present a well-supported argument and offer provocative policy recommendations; essays that consider (and reconsider) such issues as geo-political and economic change, global security (broadly defined), immigration, exile, and ethnicity; articles that provide insight into a historical era, event, or person; and articles that illuminate cultural change and cross-cultural influences; profiles that comment on the political or cultural context of which the subject is a part; book reviews; and reportage from regions or on subjects not widely covered in the general media. 

WPJ's pages have a reputation for generating high-quality, high-impact books, such as Ahmed Rashid's Jihad, Rajan Menon's End of Alliances, Brian Steidle's The Devil Came on Horseback, and of course the many books by WPI fellows and WPJ editors. 

Its audience includes senior policy makers, members of the media, scholars, and other opinion leaders. In 2001, Roll Call recognized World Policy Journal as the best reading material for Congress on America's global role.
