The Journal of Politics, a leading general interest journal in political science, publishes theoretically innovative and methodologically diverse research in all subfields of the discipline including, but not limited to, American politics, comparative politics, formal theory, international relations, methodology, political theory, public administration and public policy. Our conceptions of theory and method are both broad and encompassing, and we welcome contributions from scholars around the world.


We are delighted to announce that the Southern Political Science Association has selected a new Editorial Team for the Journal of Politics whose term formally begins January 1, 2015:  Jeff Jenkins (Editor-in Chief, American Institutions), Lisa Ellis (Political Theory), Sean Gailmard (Formal Theory/Methods), Lanny Martin (Comparative Politics), Jennifer Merolla (American Behavior), and William Reed (International Relations). 

 The current editorial team (Jan and Bill) will cease accepting manuscripts (new or revised) effective Saturday, December 13, 2014 to facilitate the editorial transition.  All manuscripts submitted after that date will be processed by the new editorial team, who will be responsible for all decisions on manuscripts, new or revised, after December 12th.

Any invitations to revise and resubmit manuscripts extended to authors before July 1, 2014 will automatically be rescinded as of December 13, 2014 and subject to de novo review upon resubmission unless the authors request and receive an extension of the R&R from the new editors.


 

 


The Journal of Politics is edited by Jan Leighley and Bill Mishler, who rely on a distinguished editorial board as well as expert reviewers.  The editorial offices are located in the School of Government and Public Policy at the University of Arizona and the Department of Government at American University. Professor Valerie Hoekstra, Arizona State University, serves as Book Review Editor.  Founded in 1938, The Journal of Politics is published by the University of Chicago Press for the Southern Political Science Association.
