Along with my colleague Martin Coward, I have recently been named by the UK Political Studies Association as one of the editors of POLITICS. Our editorial team includes Michael Barr, Emily Clough, and Valentina Feklyunina all of whom are serving as Associate Editors. Additional support is being provided by Pete Eckersley who is our Editorial Assistant. We were very pleased to have been awarded editorial stewardship of POLITICS and are keen to building upon the momentum established by the previous editorial team at the University of Glasgow.
The ethos of POLITICS is the dissemination of timely, research-led reflections on the state of the art, the state of the world and the state of disciplinary pedagogy.
We welcome 3 types of articles:
- Concise discussions of state of the art research in progress. These articles might represent early formulations of hypotheses, preliminary arguments, initial presentations of research findings or critical discussions of the state of the art in a given field.
- Research-led reflections on contemporary events in politics or international studies. Such articles draw upon – and refer back to – state of the art research in order to reflect on contemporary events.
- Theoretically informed reflections on the pedagogical challenges of learning and teaching in politics and international studies.
Articles may be either up to 4,000 or up to 6,000 words in length.
Special Issues and/or Sections: We also welcome proposals for special issues and/or sections. Such proposals should include a rationale for publication, abstracts of papers to be included and an indication of an expected delivery date.
