SAGE to publish Canada's pre-eminent International Journal


Los Angeles, CA (April 29, 2013) - SAGE has begun a partnership with the Canadian International Council (CIC) and the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History (CCIH) to publish Canada's pre-eminent journal of global policy analysis, International Journal. This long-standing journal publishes brief, policy-relevant articles alongside peer-reviewed scholarly assessments of interest to foreign policy makers, analysts and academics around the world. The journal publishes four times a year.

Established in 1946, International Journal is cross disciplinary in approach, combining the insights of history, political science and economics with anthropology and other social sciences to advance research and dialogue on global issues of significance.

"SAGE has a well-established global publishing programme in international relations and political science and we are delighted to welcome Canada's foremost foreign policy title to SAGE," said Karen Phillips, Editorial Director, SAGE. "We see a close alignment between SAGE and the CIC in our shared goal to advance research and support academic debate and policy discourse. International Journal plays an influential role in enabling the exchange of views and ideas on international relations and political science, and we look forward to developing this journal's global outreach as part of our world class international politics portfolio."

"When selecting a publisher, it was important for us to find someone who would both enhance our global impact and reader experience, while maintaining our unique brand and position. In SAGE we found a company whose infrastructure and global position would enable us to do this, and we look forward to benefitting from these during our partnership," commented Adam Chapnick, International Journal's co-editor.

"The Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History is pleased to join in the partnership with the Canadian International Council to publish Canada's leading international affairs journal. Our board member Dr. MacDonald will be co-editor and our conferences and speakers will provide content for this important journal that has deeply influenced the study of international affairs in Canada and elsewhere," said John English, Director of the CCIH.

Jennifer Jeffs, President of the Canadian International Council (CIC) added, "The journal is Canada's leading journal of international affairs and plays a key role in our mission to be a major voice in the international policy arena. SAGE is well known for its core strengths as a high quality publisher within international policy, and we see clear synergies with our core values and global publishing goals. We look forward to developing an influential relationship together."
