New Review Article Policy

The International Political Science Review (IPSR) is the journal of the International Political Science Association. It is committed to publishing peer-reviewed articles that make a significant contribution to international political science. It seeks to appeal to political scientists throughout the world and in all sub-fields of the discipline who are interested in studying political phenomena in the context of increasing international interdependence and change. IPSR reflects the aims and intellectual tradition of its parent body, the International Political Science Association: to foster the creation and dissemination of rigorous political inquiry while respecting different approaches and methods.

Articles are welcome reporting research on substantive topics and significant issues within political science. Authors of single country studies should consider the theoretical and comparative implications of the case. Special issues on themes of general interest to political scientists will be published once or twice a year and deadlines for submissions will be announced periodically.

"IPSR uses its international standing to access contributions from all over the world. Providing a rich mix of comparative, international and transnational issues, this lively journal encourages new research, new perspectives and new authors." Susanne Hoeber

"The IPSR embodies IPSA's commitment to globalizing political science. Its often fascinating achievements in doing so concerning the domestic, comparative, transnational and international aspects of our field deserve wide attention." Hayward R. Alker
