Call for submissions: “Europe in the World”

Deadline: Saturday 22nd February 2014

UoK-GEC-(Artwork)-circle.v2Dear Students,

The Kent Political Almanac (KPA) is calling for submissions for its spring edition. The journal offers an exciting opportunity for undergraduate students to have their essays published in a peer-reviewed journal supported by the School of Politics and International Relations. Having an essay published provides significant merit for those who seek to pursue post-graduate studies or employment in political journalism.

The spring issue of the KPA will be launched in cooperation with the Global Europe Centre, and as such we would particularly welcome essays with a focus on Europe and the European Union. More specifically, the theme for this special issue will be: “Europe in the World”. We would therefore encourage submissions to be related to this theme. We will also accept postgraduate in addition to undergraduate work.

However, we also accept and consider essays on other topics in the fields of politics and international relations.

In order to be considered for publishing, essays should have attained a mark of 65% or above, conform to a world limit of 3500 words, and employ the Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) system of referencing. Essays with sub-headings are preferred. Please see the Submission Guidelines and Requirements for more details.

Should you wish to submit an essay that only conformed to mark and word limit requirements in its submitted edition, KPA accepts essays that have been formatted after submission to use CMS and sub-headings.

Submissions need to be sent to by Saturday 22nd February. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

We would encourage all students to take this opportunity, and look forward to reviewing your submissions!

Kind Regards,


The Editors
