Call for Submission to CPD Perspectives on Public Diplomacy

CPD Perspectives on Public Diplomacy is a periodic publication intended to stimulate critical thinking about the study and practice of public diplomacy. We have a rolling submissions process and accept proposals year-round.

The manuscript submission process is as follows:

  • All submissions for the CPD Perspectives on Public Diplomacy series are reviewed by the CPD Publications staff.
  • Essays suited for CPD Perspectives include case studies, working papers, comparative studies, policy analyses, and histories of public diplomacy as practiced internationally.
  • Submissions must be between 7,000 and 11,000 words.
  • Please follow the MLA Style Manual in regard to style and bibliography, and include endnotes and an author’s biography. Authors may find EasyBibBibMe and CitationMachine useful (though not foolproof) resources for assistance in generating properly formatted citations. 
  • A note about tables, figures, and photos: do not embed graphics in the text; they must be sent as separate, high-resolution files, clearly labelled (e.g. "Figure 3a"). Authors must have legal rights to all photos and other graphics and attribution must be included. All graphics will be printed in black and white. 
  • All manuscripts must be submitted in Word (not as a PDF).
  • The preliminary review process can take between 2-4 weeks. Once approval is issued via email, a final proofing and layout process of approximately 6-8 weeks will take place followed by a limited print run and appearance on the CPD web site.

Please note, published essays will be reproduced in electronic form and limited print editions. Publication in CPD Perspectives does not preclude subsequent publication in scholarly journals or books.
