Engaging in professional article

Journal of International Service (JIS) Article:

The purpose of this assignment, which is 25% of your final course grade, is to demonstrate your ability to write an engaging professional article that might be read by those involved in the practice of intercultural relations. In contrast to the style of most academic journals, you must capture the reader’s attention in the very first paragraph. You also need to support any assertions you might make with logic, data, your own experience or expertise, or any other evidence that strengthens your findings. You may come up with your own topic for this paper, but be sure it fits with the tone and format of the Journal of International Service (JIS) and the interests of its readers. Ask yourself the question: “Why would a professional in this field want to read this piece?” Please contact your instructor if you would like to discuss possible topics that are appropriate. Remember, this is not a term paper, and citations are to be kept to a minimum. Of course, all direct quotes, paraphrases, and research data must be fully cited. Write your paper according to the JIS Submission Guidelines, which can be found on at https://jis- online.org/submission-requirements/. Articles should be between 1,500 and 2,800 words (around 8– 10 pages). Be sure to review previous issues of JIS to determine the types of articles that are accepted. Your paper must be double-spaced, using a 12-point font, with full citations and bibliography according to the Turabian style. All papers must be submitted online in the LMS on the due date. Final course grades are due 72 hours after our last live session, so no late papers will be accepted. After receiving feedback on your article, you are encouraged to make any revisions and submit to the JIS for publication. Papers will be read by the managing editor of JIS for consideration by the Editorial Board, whose members will blind-review for possible publication in an upcoming edition of the journal. https://jis-online.org/submission-requirements/
