Advantages of advertising in the Journal:

1. Great writers: World leaders such as Mikhail Gorbachev, Madeleine Albright, and Shimon Peres have contributed articles to the Journal, along with some of the world’s most distinguished scholars, academics, and businessmen.

2. Unmatched Value: The Journal boasts some of the most reasonable rates in the field, competitive with similar publications claiming one-half of its circulation (approximately 3200 copies).

3. Long shelf life: Because the Journal is only published twice a year, each issue remains in circulation for months. Advertisements inside any given copy will be seen many more times than those inside a weekly newspaper or magazine, either of which is usually thrown out or put away within a week of being bought.

4. A global audience: In addition to a wide distribution throughout the United States, the Journal is purchased and read throughout the world, in countries including the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Cameroon, Brazil, Hong Kong, Australia, Great Britain, and Turkey.
