The Canadian International Council's International Journal to Be Published in Partnership With SAGE

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 30, 2013) - The Canadian International Council, the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History (CCIH) and SAGE Publications have partnered to publish Canada's preeminent scholarly publication on international relations, International Journal. Since 1946, International Journal (IJ) has produced peer-reviewed, scholarly analysis of issues related to foreign policy, in both Canadian and international contexts. International Journal includes discourse from many fields of social science, including political science, history, economics and sociology. The journal is published quarterly.

Jennifer Jeffs, President of the Canadian International Council (CIC) said, "The journal is Canada's leading journal of international affairs and plays a key role in our mission to be a major voice in the international policy arena. SAGE is well known for its core strengths as a high quality publisher within international policy, and we see clear synergies with our core values and global publishing goals. We look forward to developing an influential relationship together."

"The Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History is pleased to join in the partnership with the Canadian International Council to publish Canada's leading international affairs journal. Our board member Dr. MacDonald will be co-editor and our conferences and speakers will provide content for this important journal that has deeply influenced the study of international affairs in Canada and elsewhere," said John English, Director of the CCIH.

"SAGE has a well-established global publishing programme in international relations and political science and we are delighted to welcome Canada's foremost foreign policy title to SAGE," said Karen Phillips, Editorial Director at SAGE. "We see a close alignment between SAGE and the CIC in our shared goal to advance research and support academic debate and policy discourse. The International Journal plays an influential role in enabling the exchange of views and ideas on international relations and political science, and we look forward to developing this journal's global outreach as part of our world class international politics portfolio."

International Journal's co-editor Adam Chapnick remarked, "When selecting a publisher, it was important for us to find someone who would both enhance our global impact and reader experience, whilst maintaining our unique brand and position. In SAGE we found a company whose infrastructure and global position would enable us to do this, and we look forward to benefitting from these during our partnership."

International Journal (IJ) has been recognized as Canada's pre-eminent scholarly publication on international relations since its inception in 1946. Readers benefit from wide-ranging research and analysis by scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers, Canadian and non-Canadian.
