Open Access

JGPCD is published on an open-access, public-good basis—available freely and immediately to the world. The Journal welcomes the following types of manuscripts, all of which are peer reviewed:

  • Research Article presenting the results of primary scientific research on (a) global and European politics and (b) current diplomacy;
  • Reviews presenting conceptual advances, syntheses, and integration of a field or topic. We are welcome books and movies reviews.


The JGPCD’s Objectives

The objectives of  JGPCD  are to develop, promote and coordinate research and practice in current diplomacy and its interconnection with International Relations, European studies, economy, and sociology. The  JGPCD  aims to help professionals working in the fields of economic diplomacy, financial diplomacy, commercial and corporate diplomacy, intercultural studies, European Union decision-making, international communication and policymakers. The Journal aims to establish an effective channel of communication between policy-makers, diplomats, experts, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the complex role of diplomacy, International Relations, and the European Union decision-making process.


  • All research articles proposed for publishing in JGPCD have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editors screening and reviewing by at least two anonymous reviewers.
  • Consequently, the peer review process respects the originality and personal opinions of the authors, but Editorial Board reserves the right to demand changes of the form or content of the papers if these are necessary in order to preserve the high quality and competitiveness of the journal.
  • The main selection criteria are:
    • the topical interest of the subject,
    • its relevance to the target groups of the journal,
    • its contribution to the promotion of excellence in education and research in the field of International Relations, European Studies, Political Sciences, and Cultural Diplomacy.


The JGPCD’s readership primarily consists of universities and think tanks, in particular researchers, teachers and graduate students of International Relations, together with educators and trainers on programmes in Diplomatic Studies, Cultural Diplomacy, International Relations, European Studies, and Economic Sciences.

Secondly, the  JGPCD  is a journal for everyone with an interest or stake in first-rate and accessible articles on all aspects of diplomacy, not least the world’s foreign ministries and diplomatic academies.


  • The ideas in the papers represent the views of the authors only, not the views of the Centre for European Dialogue and Cultural Diplomacy or of the Editorial Board.



  • JGPCD will give priority to the publication of original papers which were not previously published or submitted for reviewing to other journals. Still, a new version of the original work already published, updated and improved, may be accepted if this does not raise exclusive license matters. This issue should nevertheless be mentioned in a footnote.
  • The JGPCD’s Editorial Board shall not be held legally responsible and shall not pay royalties in case of demands for financial compensations from third parties.
  • In case of acceptance for publishing, JGPCD does not impose the exclusive right to publish and disseminate the paper. The article may be re-published, provided the author makes reference to the first publication by JGPCD.
