Summary The International Studies Compendium Project consists the most comprehensive reference work of its kind for the field of international studies. Peer reviewed essays of up to ten thousand words will focus on important topics and issues. Each essay will provide a comprehensive review of the development of the literature in a given area, as well as a focused discussion of current themes. Essays are designed to allow readers to be brought quickly up-to-date on the nature of questions asked, past attempts at formulating responses, and the current state of debates in a given issue area. These essays are designed for students, scholars or practitioners who want to understand the development of our thinking on international studies.

The Compendium is organized primarily around the ISA's 23 different sections. Sections represent areas of specialization within the ISA. Each specialized section organized a committee to identify key topics and identify authors. Each section will also help to provide the peer reviewers that will consider each essay prior to publication.

The project includes International Studies On-Line (ISO), peer review essays will be enhanced with live links to archives, datasets, cases, pedagogical aids and other relevant materials and the International Studies Compendia Section Volume Series (ISC) invites ISA sections to provide additional content to existing essays and publish a separate volume suitable for students or personal libraries.
