About JPIA

The Journal of Public and International Affairs (JPIA) is the premier student-run journal of policy studies. Now entering its 28th year of publication, JPIA is a joint publication of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. The Journal seeks to publish both scholarly and expository articles on a diverse range of subjects, covering the areas of international affairs, development studies, and domestic policy.

JPIA is an annual publication, accepting submissions from any advanced student in the field from an accredited institution. Submissions are reviewed in a blind screening process by an editorial board composed of students at Princeton and by contributing editors from the other APSIA schools.

Subscription and copy requests may be sent to jpia@princeton.edu or JPIA, Robertson Hall, Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544-1013.
