– Call for Submissions is currently closed. Stay tuned for the 2022 call –

The European Student Think Tank is very pleased to announce the 2021 Call for Submissions for the peer-reviewed European Policy Review journal. This year has witnessed several political, economic, and social upheaval which portends significant changes to the European Union and the rest of the world. 

In light of that, we welcome submissions on any topics that are related to European affairs. You can find the previous editions of the European Policy Review here.

Article submissions format: 

  • Submissions are welcomed in the English-language. Please use the British English spelling throughout. 
  • Manuscript files must be submitted in Microsoft Word.
  • All articles must use the APA reference style and author-date in in-text citations.
  • All articles should be between 4000 and 6000 words in length (excluding references)

Papers will be submitted to an initial review by the editorial board for a preliminary selection. The most promising papers will then go through a formal peer-review process.

Deadline for Call for Submissions: 31 March 2021

For the detailed timeline, format, paper structure, and other information, please read the European Policy Review Protocol Guide.

Please fill this form for submitting your article and do not hesitate to contact editorinchief@esthinktank.com and editorialoffice@esthinktan.com if you have any questions!


Submission: To submit your article, please fill out the “Call for Submissions” form completely by the 31st March 2021. Once the deadline has passed, we will begin the initial review of articles, and so will not be able to process any new submissions. If your article passes the initial review, it will then be sent to the EPR 2021 Team of Reviewers.

Review: The peer-review process is required to ensure that all articles published in the EPR 2021 comply with ESTs standards and practices. They will offer insightful feedback guided by the ESTs Academic Advisory Board –  an expert group made up of distinguished figures in European affairs. Once they have submitted their feedback, you will then be able to make any necessary changes. This feedback/response process will then be repeated between the months of April and June until the Editors-in-Chief are content with the article.

Publish: Once all articles have undergone their final review, the 4th volume of the EPR will be published. However, your relationship with the EST does not have to end there. We would be delighted if you wanted to our dedicated team of writers and continue working to unpack and scrutinise European affairs.
