About SCIR

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.


The Southern California International Review (SCIR) is now accepting outstanding submissions for publication in our Spring 2014 issue. Our priority deadline is February 9th, 2014 and our regular deadline is February 25th, 2014. The Review publishes up to 5 exceptional full-length articles in every issue. SCIR has published pieces from university students around the world, including Duke, Georgetown, and Australia National University. See here for more information on our submission process.
