TIS's Early Career Mentoring Programme

Discover our new mentoring scheme for early career authors!


The International Spectator welcomes solicited and unsolicited submissions of research articles, essays and book reviews on topics covering the entire spectrum of international affairs, in – and from – all the world's regions.

Moreover, in addition to its current aims and scope, the Journal wishes to support early career authors: this is why we have launched our Early career mentoring programme. It aims to encourage submissions from early career scholars (PhD students or early career researchers within three years of completion of their doctoral degree) who are finding their way through the world of scholarly publishing. To this end, the journal’s editors will provide ad-hoc preliminary feedback on selected prospective submissions to the journal, with a view to identifying potential areas for development.

How to apply:

To apply for the early career mentoring programme, authors must submit their papers directly to the journal editors at, including their cv and a short motivation letter in support of their application.

Please note that participation in the programme does not guarantee that selected papers will eventually be accepted for publication in the journal, as they will be put through the standard peer-review process as all other submissions.
