Dear All,

On behalf of the international editorial team, I would like to introduce the first issue of Global Discourse. This Andrew Linklater Special Issue features a full interview with Linklater as well as a symposium on his ‘Critical Theory and World Politics’, including a substantive reply from the author. Also included are articles on E.H. Carr and Gadamerian analysis of Gulliver’s Travels, published alongside substantive, referees’ reviews, essays on Western conceptualisation of, and engagement with, Sub-Saharan Africa, an audio lecture on the rights of refugees and further book review symposia on ‘Chasing Dragons’ by Kyle Grayson and ‘Difference and Giveness’by Levi R. Bryant, both with substantive replies from the authors. The articles, essays and reviews are available on the Contents page.

Global Discourse is a developmental journal of research in politics and international relations. We aim to provide a forum for the expression and development of distinctive research projects – particularly those which transcend disciplinary boundaries. We accept high quality submissions from any theoretical and methodological perspective and encourage debate between paradigms and schemas.

Free to access, and open to submissions from postgraduates and academics alike, Global Discourse publishes peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed material in a variety of forms: full articles accompanied by formal reviews; less formal essays; interviews; book review symposia, and mp3 audio and visual presentations.

Importantly, the journal is designed to act as a springboard for authors, providing a forum for the development of their work. Authors retain copyright and can submit their revised and developed work elsewhere six months after publication in Global Discourse.

Information on submitting work to Global Discourse can be found on the Information for Authors page.

For further information, please refer to the Contacts and Organisation page for details of the relevant regional editorial teams.

Sorry about the self-advertisement.

I am involved in a project that is creating a new online journal for postgraduates and young academics. The journal is called GLOBAL DISCOURSE [www.globaldiscourse.wordpress.com] and aims to introduce interdisciplinary communication from using the web’s interactive components. We’d welcome any articles for submittal and author’s of articles keep 100% copyright on their work. This means that articles can be removed from the website if they are published in another journal or book. We hope Global Discourse to function as a journal that allows people to present work and receive a peer-reviewed process. The peer-review is done from a combination of one academic and one postgraduate student. In addition to undergoing a peer-review process we also publish the comments from the article.

Finally, we also have book reviews that submit multiple reviews on one book and invite the author to reply to these reviews. We’d also encourage you and a few colleagues to submit reviews on one book.
