Call for Contributions: "Politikon"
- Politikon CFP
The Editorial Board of Politikon, the International Association for
Political Science Students' Academic Journal, invites graduate and
undergraduate students to submit papers for review and possible
publication in its 13th edition.
Founded in 2001, the journal is published twice yearly and distributed
in hard copy and online to more than 10,000 IAPSS members in more than
40 countries on every continent. Politikon publishes the best in
undergraduate and graduate student scholarship from around the world.
Politikon is recognised globally for its position as one of the
leading academic journals publishing the work of students from across
the fields of political science and international relations. The
peer-review and refereeing process involves full Professors, leading
academics and experts from across the world and abstracts from
Politikon are included in the International Political Science
Association's (IPSA) Annual International Political Science Abstracts.
Politikon is funded through contributions from both private and public
institutions. These have included local and regional political science
associations from throughout Europe and, in recent times, the European
Commission. As well, Politikon benefits from IAPSS's partnerships with
other established political science associations - including IPSA, the
International Studies Association (ISA) and the European Political
Science Network (epsNet) - with Politikon authors being invited to
attend and present their research at major conferences and seminars.
