Seeking Submissions to International Journal of Intercultural Relations

The International Journal of Intercultural Relations (IJIR) is an international peer-reviewed journal dedicated to advancing knowledge and understanding of theory, research and practice in the field of intercultural relations. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: intergroup perceptions, contact, and interactions; multiculturalism; acculturation; intercultural communication; intercultural training; and cultural diversity in education, organizations and society. The journal is indexed multiple data bases, including SSCI, PsycINFO, Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences, Research Alert ASSIA, and SCOPUS.

After 35 years under the direction of the founding editor, Dan Landis, the journal’s editorship passed to Colleen Ward earlier this year. IJIR now has two Associate Editors: Hee Sun Park and Gabriel Horenczyk and a number of new additions to the editorial board.

We are currently seeking new, innovative, high quality manuscripts- both empirical and review articles- for submission. The current publication lag is short, and we invite contributions that will sustain and enhance the journal’s profile.

Kulich, Executive Director of the Intercultural Institute at the Shanghai International Studies University, and Michael Prosser are serving as the Guest Editors for a special issue in 2012 for IJIR of selected early leaders in the developing field of intercultural communication.
