New editorial teams for Review of International Studies and European Journal of International Security

This article was published on

We are delighted to announce the new editorial teams for our journals Review of International Studies (RIS) and European Journal of International Security (EJIS). The new teams will take up their posts from January 2024.

RIS will be led by Dr Andrew Hom at Edinburgh, alongside Professor Cian O’Driscoll (Australian National University), Dr Soumita Basu  (South Asian University),  Dr Priya Dixit (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University), Dr Sebastian Kaempf (Queensland), Dr Maria Malksoo (Copenhagen), Dr Benjamin Martill (Edinburgh) and Dr Dahlia Simangan (Hiroshima).

EJIS will be led by Professor Andrew Mumford at Nottingham, with Professor Oliver Schmitt (Southern Denmark), Dr Amira Jadoon (Clemson), Dr Ruth Deyermond (KCL), and Dr Sergio Catignani (Exeter).

Our current RIS and EJIS editorial teams will be working with the new teams to ensure a smooth handover.

We would like to thank the outgoing teams for their work over the past few years. Both journals remain at the forefront of International Studies development and have gone from strength to strength with both editorships reaching important open access milestones over the year. RIS published its 100th open access article last month, and the current issue of EJIS is fully open access. RIS continues to climb up the Impact factor currently 22nd out of 96 journals in the International Relations category (2-year impact Factor) with a score of 2.906.

BISA Director, Juliet Dryden, said:

“The BISA trustees and team are excited to expand on this work with the new editorial teams to ensure both RIS and EJIS remain at the intellectual heart of the Association, and continue to be leading journals in the field.”

Before the current teams move on there are still plenty of events coming up. The new Editors’ Selection from RIS was published yesterday – this time a collection on Intellectual History chosen by Richard Devetak – and EJIS are running a conference in May on ‘Security in a Time of ‘Polycrisis’?’. Both journals will also be at ISA 2023 and BISA 2023.
