Briefings (See recent examples)
On our Web site, we publish daily news, analysis and opinion “briefings” concerning issues of current importance. We especially seek articles that would be of interest and importance for U.S and Western policymakers. These briefings are generally 850-950 words in length. These articles should look beyond the basic facts to offer our readers context and insight. Briefings can contain opinions but should not be shrill or strident in tone.
Briefings should be written so that they will last for at least one week. We try to publish timely articles as soon as possible, but publication may not occur for several days.
Feature Articles (See recent examples)
We publish features every two weeks. Each feature consists of three 2,500-4,000-word in-depth analyses organized around a single subject or theme. Typically, we commission these articles directly from writers, but compelling unsolicited submissions will be considered.
Strategic Posture Reviews (See recent examples)
We publish Strategic Posture Review every two months. Strategic Posture Review are 5,000-word examinations of the foreign and defense policies of individual countries.

"Wherever I am on the globe on any given day, I make sure to access World Politics Review. First I read the latest briefing, then the latest column. I scan and often read the most recent feature and report. I never miss . . . Trend Lines and Leading Indicators. WPR is a vital link in keeping me well informed, educated, and prepared in an ever-changing world. I would be lost as a global citizen without the information always presented, insightfully, succinctly, and elegantly in WPR."
