Founded in September 2015, the Illini Journal of International Security (IJOIS) is a student-run and peer-reviewed academic journal supported by ACDIS. Submissions offering cross-disciplinary takes on security issues are encouraged, and students from all University of Illinois campuses are welcome to contribute.


IJOIS publishes 4-7 submissions bi-annually and maintains a blog that is updated year-round. For information on guidelines and deadlines reference IJOIS Submissions.

IJOIS is an independent, student-run organization affiliated with ACDIS through its constitution. ACDIS staff coordinate and collaborate with these two groups to ensure success in their endeavors.

Happy Holidays & Have a Great Break!
