|Abbreviated title (ISO 4)||Orbis|
|Edited by||Mackubin Thomas Owens|
|Publisher||Elsevier on behalf of the Foreign Policy Research Institute (United States)|
Orbis is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal on international relations and the foreign policy of the United States. It is published by Elsevier on behalf of the Philadelphia-based Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI), an international affairs think tank established in 1955.
FPRI founder Robert Strausz-Hupé established Orbis in response to his dissatisfaction with the Council on Foreign Relations' Foreign Affairs, in which he never published an article. Strausz-Hupé edited the journal himself from its first issue in 1957 until 1969, when he left FPRI to begin a diplomatic career, handing the reins to William R. Kintner.
The journal is presently edited by Mackubin Thomas Owens, an American military historian. Other recent editors include James Kurth (2005–2007), David Eisenhower (2001–2004), and Walter A. McDougall (1995–2001).
