1.   Global: Jurnal Politik Internasional seeks to publish scholarly manuscripts discussing major theories, concepts and themes on International Relations. As Global seeks to continue publishing original articles, authors should refrain from submitting articles that have been published elsewhere, either in whole or in substantial part, and manuscripts that are concurrently either sent to the other journal publisher or in the process of review by other editorial boards. The scholarly manuscripts may take the form of original research articles (see template for original research articles) as well as critical literature review (see template for critical literature review). Above templates are summarized into the following manuscripts checklist. The following passage may serve as a brief summary of both manuscript templates.
