Our Service

To help our subscribers closely follow international affairs, WPR provides:

  • A daily Media Roundup to help you track the stories that you must follow to stay informed. The Media Roundup is published at www.worldpoliticsreview.com/media-roundup and sent out by e-mail every weekday morning. In the daily Media Roundup, our editors link to approximately 20 news articles, and 15-20 opinion pieces from the world's English-language press each weekday.
  • A daily Leading Indicators service to alert you to emerging stories before they become mainstream news. Leading Indicators, also published at www.worldpoliticsreview.com/media-roundup and sent out by e-mail every weekday afternoon (U.S. Eastern time), links to and highlights items from the international press that our editors believe may indicate a developing trend, or important events to come.

To help our subscribers better understand international affairs, World Politics Review publishes geostrategic analysis in a variety of formats that examines the geographic, political and strategic factors that affect relations between international actors, including states and non-state actors.

  • Every day we publish multiple five-minute reads, including our Briefings and Columns. Our briefings are written by our global network of expert contributors, on matters of current importance. Our lineup of five columnists provide a different authoritative take on international affairs every day of the week.
  • WPR's in-depth, full-length reports provide comprehensive examinations of single subjects. These include our Features, Special Reports, and Strategic Posture Reviews.
  • In the Trend Lines section, you'll find quick-hitting expert perspectives on events and issues, including analysis written or reported by our editors, as well as our "Global Insider" interview series.

WPR also provides a variety of tools to support our subscribers' need to conduct research and gather background information:

  • WPR's Media Roundup search tool gives subscribers the ability to search for individual topics across dozens of international news sources.
  • WPR's site-wide search tool allows subscribers to refine their searches so that they can find our Daily and In-Depth analyses as well as the News Wire items highlighted by our editors.

With all these tools at your disposal, you'll not only know what is happening, you'll get closer to understanding why. Sign up now for an individual free trial, or contact subscriptions@worldpoliticsreview.com for more information about our institutional site licenses for organizations.
