Submission Guidelines

All submissions must be directed to: submissions@gig.org. Book reviews should not exceed 2,000 words.  Articles and essays should be limited to a maximum of 3,000 words.  Although subject matter may be specialized, the presentation should be accessible to a general readership.

Please include the working title of your article or review in the Email subject.  In addition, for our records, include the following details in your Email Body:

  1. Working title of the submission; for reviews include the author and title of the book
  2. First Name, Last Name
  3. Email address
  4. A two-sentence bio
  5. The submission itself as an attachment. (We accept most word processor formats).

Once we receive your submission, it will be processed, and you will receive a confirmation email. We consider articles, essays, interviews, book review essays, photographic and multimedia presentations.  They will be evaluated by readers who are specialists in the topics of the submission.

We are especially interested in reviews of new books on topics of global concern as enumerated on the list below.  We also seek reconsiderations of classic works on such topics that examine their contemporary relevancy.

The journal welcomes articles on the roles and missions of organizations devoted to addressing global issues.

We wish to continue our series of interviews with individuals who play significant roles in such organizations, who are specialists in a particular area, and who are academic experts in relevant fields.

The following is a suggested list of topics:

  • the environment
  • war and conflict, both conventional and insurgent
  • population trends and their impact on cultures, political institutions, markets, and the environment.
  • the movements of peoples across borders
  • the meaning of borders themselves
  • multinational corporations and economic interconnections
  • the role of the United Nations and other international bodies
  • how women and minorities are affected by globalization
  • issues in global distributive justice; e.g. exportation of hazardous waste for disposal in third-world countries, inequalities in health care and responses to health emergencies across countries, prospects of global pandemics, and unethical clinical trials conducted in impoverished countries
  • the effects of globalization on the human quest for meaning and on views of the “good life”
  • how the media and information technology are affected by and help shape an increasingly global planet.
  • religion based conflict
  • the evolution of languages
  • the role of education.
  • how globalization today is both similar to and different from earlier instances of globalization.

In addition to these topics, contributors may address such meta-issues as: the meaning of globalization; its general benefits and costs to nations, groups, and individuals; the problem posed by globalization in a world with a single superpower; global disparities of health, education, and general well being; and the changing responsibilities of individuals, institutions, and governments in a globalized world.
