About JPIA

The Journal of Public and International Affairs (JPIA) is the premier student-run journal of policy studies, both foreign and domestic. JPIA is a joint publication of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) and the School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. Since 1990, the Journal has published scholarly articles on a diverse range of subjects, covering the areas of international affairs, international development, domestic (U.S.) policy, and economic policy.

JPIA is an annual publication, accepting submissions from graduate students at any institution that is a member or affiliate of APSIA. Submissions are reviewed by an editorial board composed of graduate students from Princeton University and other APSIA schools using a blind scoring process. Submissions are solicited November through January and a new edition of the Journal is published each May. For more information, please visit the “Submissions” section of our website.

Previous editions can be found on the archives section of our website and in print at APSIA member institutions.



Created in 1989, the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) is dedicated to the improvement of graduate education in international affairs. APSIA seeks to advance international understanding, prosperity, peace, and security through the people and ideas shaped by its member schools.

APSIA brings together the leading graduate schools around the world, which specialize in international affairs. The organization strengthens its members and affiliates by gathering information and sharing ideas. It connects prospective students and employers to its member schools, so that they can capitalize on the skills an APSIA education provides. APSIA collaborates with other higher education institutions and the professional international affairs community in order to address common problems.
