We’re looking for interesting, novel, and analytically rigorous arguments and/or explanations for timely issues in international relations. If you feel you and your proposed article are qualified, our editorial process follows three simple steps:
- Send us a 1-2 paragraph proposal introducing your idea, its tenets, and why you feel you are well qualified to write on this topic. Our email address is: editorial ^at^ transatlantic-magazine.com
- If we approve of your proposal (within 5-7 business days), you will have 7-10 business days to complete a concise, honest, and substantiated argument free of mechanical errors. Your format and style constraints are as follows:
- Length: 500-1,500 words or approximately two (2) to six (6) double-spaced typed pages.
- Include a title and subheads.
- Write in the third person and/or, sparingly, in the second person.
- Avoid the passive tense.
- Use clear, straightforward English.
- Spell out acronyms or abbreviations the first time you use them.
- Include all titles of standards, in addition to standard designations.
- Define all jargon.
- If you have a specific photo you’d like the magazine to use with your article, please attach the photo separately (do not embed in your article’s document). Please also accompany this photo with a permission statement from its rightful owner.
- After reviewing your submission, if we notice some serious logical or conceptual issues, we may request a substantial rewrite of your submission. You’ll then have 2-3 business days to try one more time. Otherwise, if your argument is sound, we’ll either outright publish the article, or we’ll make some minor suggestions aimed at fixing mechanical and/or potential stylistic problems.

You must make every effort to ensure your references are accurate, free from bias, and framed in proper context.
