Useful Links and Information on IR

I was doing some research on IR scholars and theories recently and came across a website called Theory Talks, below is its own description:
Theory Talks is an interactive forum for discussion of debates in International Relations with an emphasis on the underlying theoretical issues. By frequently inviting cutting-edge specialists in the field to elucidate their work and to explain current developments both in IR theory and real-world politics, Theory Talks aims to offer both scholars and students a comprehensive view of the field and its most important protagonists.
We invite you to react and leave any kind of comment, question or suggestion – the invitees frequently respond to comments and welcome any contribution to ongoing debate. Learn how you can participate on the page ‘You Talk!’.
And also two articles: International Relations as a Social Science: Rigor and Relevance and Teaching and Research Practices, Views on the Discipline, and Policy Attitudes of International Relations Faculty at U.S. Colleges and Universities.

The first is written by Jeffry A. Frieden and David A. Lake, which offers description on the "current frontiers of research on IR." The second is a survey on the IR discipline conducted by the Institute for the Theory and Practice of International Relations.
