IIR Peer-reviewed Journal

Perspectives (ISSN 1210-762X) is a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year in English. Its subtitle is The Review of International Affairs. It has been published since 1993 and peer-reviewed since 2002. By now it has established itself as the leading journal in Central and Eastern Europe, dealing with ranges of issues from international relations theory to contemporary international politics, including regional and global issues that affect international relations.

Articles published in Perspectives are always based on strong theoretical framework and use sound methodological instruments. In order to ensure that these high standards are met, every article submitted for publication undergoes the process of peer review. Thus, at least two or three world's leading experts in the field concerned are asked to submit their review report on the article. Based on this report, the article is either published or sent back to the author for revision or turned down.
