SIPA News – Call to New Students for Article Submissions

SIPA students have many opportunities to get involved in activities related to their studies, including the opportunity to publish in SIPA News and The Journal of International Affairs.  The staff of SIPA News asked me to outreach to incoming SIPA students that might be interested in submitting an article for consideration.  Please see the message below and if you are interested, contact the individuals noted below.


SIPA News is a semi-annual magazine written by students, alumni, and faculty and distributed to the global SIPA community. Our fall issue will encompass the intersection of science, technology and policy. Where do SIPA students stand on the issues surrounding these fields and what perspectives can they offer on how the advancements in the Internet, for example, have changed the way we communicate and interact with and in the world? What are the most critical issues that have arisen in light of the development in these fields?

From Twitter in Tehran to cell phones in rural Africa, technological and scientific advancements bridge the divide between developed and developing nations, provide a new model of open governance and can foster environments for innovation and entrepreneurship even as much of the world deals with the fallout of the 2008 economic crisis.  At the same time, as with any technological and scientific advancement, attention must also be made to the legal and policy-related ramifications.

We welcome contributions from all SIPA students, with a premium on first-hand reporting. We’re looking for colorful stories about real people, ­not a political science essay.

If you’d like to write for us, please send your proposals. Proposals should be at least one full paragraph and be representative of your writing. Clips are also welcome. (We’ll reply right away). We need your feature stories (around 1000 words), shorter articles, photos, and photo essays.  Final drafts of all submissions must be received by September 15.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,
