International Studies Review, a widely read journal in international relations, has a new home in the political science department in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, where it will be edited by faculty members Jennifer Sterling-Folker and Mark Boyer.
It is the second international journal to move to the department in recent weeks.
The Journal of Human Rights moved to UConn from Wellesley College.
International Studies Review, published by the International Studies Association, was based most recently at Syracuse University.
It focuses on research articles that synthesize scholarship throughout the field; review essays of current trends; and reviews of books and symposia.
The quarterly will be housed at UConn for five years, beginning with issues published in 2008.
From 2000 to 2004, Boyer was the inaugural editor of a sister journal, International Studies Perspectives, focusing on policy-relevant research and pedagogy; Sterling-Folker was an associate editor, as was Betty Hanson, also a professor of political science.
Boyer has written five books on the global economy, international politics, and conflict and cooperation.
Sterling-Folker, an associate professor, is an international relations theorist whose interests are international organization and cooperation.
