The Monitor Journal

The Monitor is the College of William and Mary's journal of international studies. We publish a journal each semester featuring articles with original research from students at the College. Each semester we strive to create a journal that offers fresh and innovative perspectives on global events.


The Monitor is looking for submissions for our Spring 2017 Issue! If you have excellent work that you would like to submit, please visit the Submit to the Journal page for more information. The deadline for the Spring 2017 Issue is March 3rd at 11:59pm.

 In an effort to expand the breadth of material the Monitor publishes, we are excited to announce that the Monitor has started a blog. This effort will deliver the same thorough and keenly critical perspectives that our readers have come to expect, but in a shorter form that will allow us to keep abreast of a rapidly-changing international environment. Visit our blog here.


Our Fall 2016 Issue is online! It features articles on China and Russia's growing tensions in Central Asia, the multiple roles of women bringing about politican reforms in the Arab World, enforced disappearances in Mexico and the lack of accountability for human rights, and a study of Latin American voter turnout. Keep an eye out for it on locations around campus in December or read it now on our Issues page.
