Sage is to publish the Journal of International Political Theory (JIPT) from February 2014. The interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal provides a forum to explore international and global politics from a range of theoretical and philosophical perspectives. The journal will be published three times a year in February, June and October.

The company says the journal is committed to theoretical and philosophical diversity in the study of international thought. It aims to encourage innovative theoretical engagement with a wide array of issues including, but not limited to: human rights, global social justice, world order, armed conflict, peace, neocolonialism, climate change, international history and globalisation.

JIPT welcomes submissions that focus on individual thinkers, particularly social and political concepts, and various schools of thought (such as liberalism, feminism, cosmopolitanism, poststructuralism, realism, post-colonialism, critical theory, and comparative political theory).

'SAGE has a well established and highly regarded global publishing programme in international relations and political theory, and we are delighted to have been selected as the publisher of JIPT,' said Karen Phillips, editorial director at SAGE.

'Our commitment to ensuring the international dissemination of leading research is a goal closely aligned with that of JIPT. We look forward to supporting the journal’s core offering to scholars working in international relations in Europe and North America, as well as globally, said Patrick Hayden, editor.

'SAGE is well known for its core strengths as a publisher within international relations and we see close alignment with our core values and their global publishing goals. JIPT aspires to enhance the development of ideas around political theory, and we believe SAGE’s international presence and highly developed IR portfolio will enable us to do this. We look forward to developing a successful future together.'
