About Us

E-International Relations (E-IR) is the world’s leading open access website for students and scholars of international politics, featuring high quality scholarly content and student-facing resources. The website was established in November 2007, and is recommended by leading academics and practitioners from around the world. We reach over 3 million unique readers per year.

In addition to maintaining the website, E-International Relations produces a range of open access books.

E-IR is owned and operated by a registered non-profit organisation. We raise our operating budget by selling advertising on the website, from book sales, and via donations from our readers.

Our goals

1) To be the leading open access scholarly publisher in our field, making reputable expert content free to view for all.

Our team
