JMEPP 2014-15 Call for Submissions

JMEPP is now accepting submissions for its print and online publications.

JMEPP is a nonpartisan policy review published at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. The Journal presents a diversity of scholarship and commentary on issues of policy relevance to the contemporary Middle East and North Africa.

We are committed to presenting new perspectives on pressing problems, addressing complex issues with insightful analysis, and exploring emerging trends shaping the region. We are interested in policy writing that is forward-thinking, empirically-grounded, and accessible.

Submissions may discuss trends in politics, economics, development, military affairs, international relations, foreign policy, religion, culture and/or other issues that relate to public policy developments in the region.

Submission Guidelines

Appropriate submissions for the print edition include feature articles (1000-2,500 words), commentaries (500-1,500 words), and book reviews (500-1,500 words).

If you plan to submit a feature article for the print journal, please send an initial abstract.

Appropriate submissions for the online edition will be fewer than 1,000 words and may include commentaries and opinion pieces, news analyses, art and cultural reviews, as well as other types of analytic or creative content that provide new perspectives on political issues and policy challenges facing the region today.
