Besides the student trips, speaker panels, and networking events, there are also many opportunities for SIPA students to publish their work. Here is a list of a few student-led initiatives:

  1. Journal of International Affairs

Founded in 1947, the Journal of International Affairs is a leading peer-reviewed journal published by SIPA. It is the premier university-affiliated periodical in the field and has earned worldwide recognition for framing the heated debates that define global events and foreign policy. While submissions are written by academics and practitioners in international relations, political science, history and related fields, there is a student essay competition that SIPA students can enter. For more information about the Journal of International Affairs, view their website at jia.sipa.columbia.edu.

  1. Columbia Public Policy Review

Founded in 2015, the Columbia Public Policy Review (CPPR) is a student-run, free-of-charge, and independent forum that connects students and experts to the public policy debate in the United States and the world via online, events, and an annual print journal. You can visit the CPPR’s website at columbiapublicpolicyreview.org.

  1. APAC Journal

The APAC Journal is a periodical published by Columbia University’s Asia Pacific Affairs Council at the Weatherhead East Asian Institute. Released annually by Columbia students, the APAC Journal is dedicated to fostering an understanding of vital issues through the exchange of professional and personal experiences spanning the Asia Pacific region. You can find copies of the APAC journal here.

  1. The Morningside Post

The Morningside Post (TMP) isn’t a journal, but SIPA’s online news outlet. TMP is the SIPA platform for students to share their voice, experiences, news, and opinions. Articles by students on course reviews, background stories, SIPA-related news, and topical debates are published. Some of my favorite TMP articles are the ones about the best pizza around NYC. For more information visit their website at morningsidepost.com.

Check out the websites above and perhaps when you’re at SIPA, you’ll see your name in an article byline!
