Submission Guidelines

global-e welcomes submissions from scholars and practitioners in the field of global studies. Commentaries should focus on public issues, historical trends, theoretical debates, methodological challenges, and curricular concerns. We are especially interested in essays that employ concise, polished, and provocative prose to address readers across disciplines as well as broader constituencies outside the academy. Our postings typically range between 1200 to 1500 words, although we are willing to consider shorter pieces, especially those that address timely issues, such as recent elections, conflicts, demonstrations, or cultural events.
global-e is an open access publication and therefore does not claim exclusive rights to an author’s submission. Indeed, we encourage scholars and practitioners to contribute notes, précis, and extracts from longer publishing projects. We also are looking for essays that are prompted by research or activist endeavors that may be at an embryonic stage. And we are open to proposals for collections of essays, which we feature as a topical series, such as “Public Imagination” and “Global Studies in East Asia.”
In order to benefit fully from our digital publishing capacities, contributors are encouraged to include hyperlinks, graphics, charts, video, and other illustrative materials. When submitting images, please send us your largest possible TIFF or JPEG files up to a maximum size of 2MB.
Please email enquires and submissions to Victor Faessel, managing editor.
