Foreign Affairs covers a broad range of topics related to American foreign policy and global affairs. It strives to present clear thinking by knowledgeable observers on important issues, written in English that can be read with ease and pleasure by both professionals and a broad general audience.
We welcome pitches and unsolicited manuscripts, considering them on a rolling basis rather than according to a fixed editorial calendar. The best guide to what we are looking for, in terms of both substance and style, is what we have already published, so prospective authors should start by browsing our archives. All submissions should be accompanied by full contact information and a brief note describing the author's current and past positions, recent publications, and relevant experience. We do not have fact checkers and rely on authors to ensure the veracity of their statements. Although we try to avoid using footnotes, contributors should be able to provide appropriate citations for any facts or quotations their pieces contain. Unless otherwise informed, we assume any piece submitted to us is being offered exclusively and that no piece accepted for publication will be published elsewhere simultaneously in any form without our knowledge.
