NEW FEATURE: European Political Science Review is launching a series of special issues. Open to all areas of political science and related disciplines, we welcome proposals that offer innovative, cutting-edge research that moves theoretical and empirical knowledge forward. We wish our special issues to become points of reference for the renewal of established research agendas and the development of new ones. Information on how to prepare an EPSR special issue proposal can be found here

We are delighted to announce that all articles accepted for publication in the European Political Science Review from 05 September 2023 will be ‘open access’; published with a Creative Commons licence and freely available to read online (see the journal's Open Access Options page for available licence options). The costs of open access publication will be covered through agreements between the publisher and the author’s institution, payment of APCs by funding bodies, or else waived entirely, ensuring every author can publish and enjoy the benefits of OA.

Please see the journal's Open Access Options page for instructions on how to request an APC waiver.

The European Political Science Review (EPSR) publishes high quality scholarly research in political science, focusing on the most important debates in the discipline and demonstrating the highest possible standards in conceptualisation, theorisation and methodology. Submissions should emphasise why they are of interest to a broad readership across sub-disciplines and should engage with central theoretical debates in political science.

EPSR welcomes empirical papers based on either qualitative or quantitative methodologies. These papers should be placed in the context of larger (theoretical) debates in the discipline. EPSR also welcomes conceptual and theoretical papers as well as contributions from the field of normative political theory.

EPSR is not concerned solely with European political issues nor is it conceived as exclusively for European scholars. Submissions dealing with global issues and non-European topics are very much welcome.
