International Relations publishes book reviews and literature reviews.
A. Single Book Reviews
International Relations journal publishes book reviews of 900-1200 words that evaluate academic books published in the last 2-3 years. Book reviews exceeding 1200 words will be returned to its authors without evaluation. The review first should convey the subject, purpose, and scope of the reviewed book to the reader and then critically evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the book. The main of the review section is not to advertise new publications, but to critically evaluate and introduce them to the readers.
The version of the book reviewed should be based on the language in which it was first published. If the book has also been translated into Turkish, this information should be shared with the reader.
International Relations does not publish reviews of books published only in Turkish. If a book, whose first edition was published in Turkish, is published in other languages, then its version in those languages could be reviewed.
