Looking Back and Looking Forward in IPE

Inquiries: Lena Rethel (Lead Editor), University of Warwick, UK - [email protected]

To commemorate its 30-year anniversary, Review of International Political Economy (RIPE) is assembling a Special Feature on Looking Back and Looking Forward in IPE. We invite original articles from early career researchers and emerging scholars on the future directions of IPE. IPE has grown significantly as a field since RIPE’s inception, becoming more diverse in the topics and geographical regions covered and the theoretical and methodological frameworks employed.

This Special Feature will include perspectives from a new generation of IPE scholars, whose scholarship speaks to the past and future of IPE explaining the directions that they believe the field is headed and discussing the major challenges that they believe the discipline faces. Submissions can cover any topic and utilize any theoretical or methodological approach, but they must engage with and reflect on RIPE history and speak to the future trajectory of the field.

For interested scholars who would like to receive more mentoring on their manuscripts, we will run two preparatory workshops. One workshop, focusing specifically on scholars whose work has been underrepresented in IPE, will be held on Tuesday, March 29, 2022 in conjunction with the IPE Section of the International Studies Association at the 2022 ISA Annual Convention in Nashville. Please find the call for abstracts here: https://tinyurl.com/vd3b49ts – deadline: November 30, 2021. The other workshop will be held online on Thursday, April 28, 2022. If you are interested in being considered for the online workshop, please submit your paper abstract, including contact details and short biographical note, to [email protected], stating RIPE 30th Anniversary Special Feature Workshop in the subject line – deadline:  February 28, 2022.

Submission Instructions

The word limit for submissions is 8,000 words. Submitters must be early career scholars with a PhD completion date of no earlier than 2016 (career breaks can be deducted), or emerging scholars who have not yet published in RIPE. We request authors submit a short biographical note explaining why one should consider them early career and/or emerging scholars (250 words or less). We particularly welcome submissions from women, under-represented scholars and researchers from the Global South.

Submissions will open in late October 2021 and close on 30th June 2022 to allow for a timely peer-review process. We very much encourage early submissions. Please submit your manuscript through Taylor & Francis’ Submission Portal but make sure to select 30th Anniversary from the Special Issue list to be considered for this Special Feature. We anticipate these articles appearing in the journal over the course of the anniversary year. Accordingly, accepted manuscripts are guaranteed publication in one of the six issues that together form volume 30 of the Review of International Political Economy to be published in 2023.

Open for submissions: 20 October 2021 to 30 June 2022
