World Politics Review publishes original analysis, reporting and opinion on international affairs. Since 2006, we have published the work of thousands of expert contributors around the world.

We regularly seek new contributors who wish to have their work read by an international audience of academics, policymakers, businesspeople and others who rely on WPR for thoughtful, non-partisan, insightful analysis of the most pressing international issues of the day.

If you have an idea or draft for an article in one of the formats below, our editors can be reached at [email protected].


On our Web site, we publish daily news, analysis and opinion “briefings” concerning issues of current importance. We especially seek articles that would be of interest and importance for policymakers, both in the U.S. and abroad. Briefings are generally 1,000-1,200 words in length. They should look beyond the basic facts to offer our readers context and insight on current events and policy debates. Briefings can contain opinions but should not be shrill or strident in tone. They should be timely but still have relevance beyond the news cycle.

In-Depth Articles

We publish in-depth articles once every week. In-depth articles are 2,400 words and take a deeper and more comprehensive look at an issue, at times through original reporting. Typically, we commission these articles directly from writers and journalists, but compelling unsolicited submissions will be considered.

Payment and Contract Terms

Our standard honorarium for briefings is $300. Rates for feature articles are individually negotiated. Payments will generally be made, subject to the provision of required information by the contributor, within one month of publication. Contributors also receive a complimentary six-month subscription to World Politics Review. 

Contributors should be aware that World Politics Review is a subscription-based Web site and accessibility of articles to non-subscribers is limited, though WPR works with contributors to accommodate their own access needs. All articles will be published by World Politics Review exclusively.
