About the Author A group of scholars and practitioners founded the International Studies Association (ISA) in 1959 to pursue mutual interests in international studies. Representing eighty countries, ISA has over three thousand members worldwide and is the most respected and widely known scholarly association in this field. Geographic subdivisions of ISA, called Regions, provide opportunities to exchange ideas and research with local colleagues. Over twenty special interest groups, called Sections, offer additional contact between members interested in specific areas within the field of international studies. Together, these Regions and Sections allow the creation communities of scholars dedicated to international studies. ISA's international conferences and annual convention attract scholars from all over the world. ISA cooperates with 53 international studies organizations in 32 countries, and is a member of the International Social Science Council, and has nongovernmental consultative status with the United Nations. ISA's journals help define the field and showcase the research of our members. The International Studies Quarterly (ISQ) started in conjunction with the Association as its flagship journal. With a broad interdisciplinary and multinational perspective, the International Studies Review (ISR) tracks worldwide trends, synthesizing theory and literature in the field. International Studies Perspectives began publication in 2000 and is focused on teaching, research, and the state of the profession. ISA's most recent journal, Foreign Policy Analysis, provides a peer-reviewed outlet for the highest quality academic research into the processes, outcomes and theories of foreign policy.
