Authors’ Guidelines

The National Research University Higher School of Economics invites authors to submit articles for consideration for publication in the International Organisations Research Journal (IORJ).

IORJ is open to collaboration with expert organizations, research institutions and universities studying international institutions, development of education, social science, and innovation in national and international contexts. We welcome researchers and experts in international affairs, global governance, and socioeconomic policy. We cooperate with researchers and experts from international universities and organizations and aim to acquaint Russian readers with the findings from foreign authors’ research. IORJ accepts submissions from postgraduate students from Russian, CIS and foreign universities. Our target audience includes heads and specialists from research organisations, government ministries and agencies, Russian and international experts, and the international academic community.

All manuscripts should be sent by e-mail to  iorj@hse.ru  

We look forward to seeing you among our authors!

For your attention:

IORJ is available for free. Articles should comply with the journal’s themes, be scientifically rigorous and follow the submission requirements. Failure to prepare a manuscript according to these requirements may lead to its rejection.

All submissions undergo anonymous peer reviewing. IORJ editorial staff will inform authors of the outcomes of the peer-review process.

If the article is accepted for publication, a licence agreement is signed with the authors. It is a condition of publication that authors grant a nonexclusive licence to the National Research University Higher School of Economics.
