Abbreviated title (ISO 4)
|Mich. J. Polit. Sci.|
University of Michigan (United States)
It has been recognized by UNESCO as one of the top 50 political science journals worldwide. The Journal has been in existence for over twenty-five years.
The journal was established in 1981 at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Originally, the journal published only papers within the field of political science proper, excluding public policy, law, and other related fields. In 1991, however, the journal began expanding its focus to include other fields such as sociology, history, public policy, economics, and political philosophy, so long as they related to political affairs.
Submissions and scope
The journal accepts submissions from students attending accredited universities worldwide. Though papers may be submitted by graduate students as well as undergraduates, they must have been written as an undergraduate. Papers are selected by a blind review process.
The journal holds elections each April to determine the editorial board for the following year.
