About Us

SCIR is a global undergraduate international studies journal published biannually and funded by the School of International Relations at the University of Southern California (USC). Article topics published in the journal range from economic and political issues to cultural and social themes. Founded in 2011, the journal seeks to foster and enhance discussion between theoretical and policy-oriented research regarding significant global issues. Furthermore, SCIR serves as an opportunity for undergraduate students at USC as well as other universities in the region to publish their research and other academic findings thereby publicizing their work to a larger audience. SCIR is managed completely by students and also provides undergraduates valuable experience in the fields of academic editing, publishing, and graphic design.

SCIR is an international journal and welcomes submissions from university students around the United States and the world.

SCIR previously partnered with Glimpse from the Globe, a student-run outlet dedicated to providing timely and timeless content on international affairs. Glimpse has moved to www.glimpsefromtheglobe.com.
