The Journal of Global Politics and Current Diplomacy publishes peer-reviewed scholarly papers without being predisposed nor encouraging any particular methodology.


Peer Review Policy

  • All research articles proposed for publishing in the JGPCD will be undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editors screening (even screening for plagiarism) 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.
