Dr. Nukhet A. Sandal, Associate Professor and Chair of Political Science at Ohio University, took over as the new editor-in-chief of Oxford Research Encyclopedia of International Studies (OREIS) in January 2020.

OREIS  is a major collaboration between Oxford University Press and the International Studies Association, and has an increasing number of readers around the world.

OREIS is available free of charge to more than 7,000 members of the International Studies Association, and is seen as a major resource for international studies scholars from multiple disciplines. It includes articles on fundamental concepts and discussions of international relations, in addition to pieces on innovative approaches and new directions in international studies.

Sandal states that she is excited to be embarking on this major endeavor with a diverse editorial team that has a global reach. She worked for this initiative when she was a graduate student and the project was in its initial stages. “It is great to be back as the Editor-in-Chief,” she says.

Sandal and her new team took over the editorial duties from Renee Marlin-Bennett, Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University.

“This is a real mark of distinction and credit to Dr. Sandal’s reputation in the field,” said Dr. Joseph Shields, Vice President for Research and Creative Activity at Ohio University.

Dr. Lorna Jean Edmonds, Director of the OHIO Center for International Studies, stated that Sandal “will provide excellent and impactful leadership to this major initiative.”

Sandal says that she is grateful for the support of the College of Arts & Sciences and the Center for International Studies. “It is not possible to take such a leadership role without strong institutional support,” she adds.
