  • Contemporary issues (not historical)
  • Papers that you wrote for classes that follow these guidelines are acceptable!
Tips & Suggestions for Getting Published:
  • The more obscure the topic and country covered, the better!
  • If it isn’t making CNN headlines, we want to hear about it.
  • Diversify your field: involve culture, science, religion, and economics.
  • Avoid mainstream issues like the Syrian refugee crisis and the rise of the right wing.
  • Avoid countries that are always in the news, like China, Russia, and the United States.
