The Canadian Foreign Policy Journal (CFPJ) is seeking submissions for its 30th volume, to be published in 2024/25.

CFPJ is a fully peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal published by the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA) at Carleton University, Canada. Readers include government officials, academics, students of international affairs, journalists, NGOs, and the private sector. Established in 1992, CFPJ is now Canada’s leading journal of international affairs.

We invite thematic essays, policy commentaries, comparative studies, historical reviews, economic, public health, and international law perspectives. Full articles should be between 6,000-7,000 words while policy commentaries should be between 1,500-2000 words.  

The CFPJ foregrounds quantitative and qualitative methodologies, especially empirically based original studies that facilitate balanced and fresh analysis to serve theory, policy, and strategy development. 

Articles submitted to the Journal should be original contributions and are subject to rigorous peer review. With occasional exceptions, the editors prioritize articles based on empirically grounded research using strong quantitative and/or qualitative social science research methods. When submitting, please indicate clearly if the article is under consideration by another publisher. Articles are read by the journal’s editors as well as by two to four outside reviewers.
