Aim and Scope

Interdisciplinary Political Studies (IdPS) aims to pursue two goals: affirming the importance of rigorous, high-quality Open Access publishing in the field of Political Studies, without imposing article processing charges to authors, and opening the fields of comparative politics and international relations to the contribution of other related disciplines. It is open to scholars studying political issues through the lens of several social science disciplines such as political science, international relations, political theory, political economy, sociology, legal studies and contemporary history. Interdisciplinary analyses are particularly welcome. It publishes two issues per year focusing on domestic and international politics.

IdPS considers the following types of submissions: Research Articles, Research Notes, Review Essays and Book Reviews. Prospective guest editors are invited to submit special issues proposals.

All papers are subject to a rigorous process of double-blind peer-review.

Interdisciplinary Political Studies (IdPS) is a peer-reviewed, Open Access, online journal publishing in the fields of Comparative Politics and International Relations. This Special Issue of IdPS aims at exploring understudied dimensions of civil wars, insurgencies and armed politics such as the impact of state repression on insurgencies’ configuration; the role of civilians as independent agents and more in general the relations amongst non-state actors (e.g. civilians, external states and international organizations, criminal networks and economic elites). To address these themes, the book review editors are looking for original and insightful reviews of newly published academicbooks dealing with these debates.

IdPS has selected a list of recommended books for review, but it also welcomes other suggestions from reviewers within the themes of the upcoming special issue. Book reviewers are free to choose their book(s) but we cannot guarantee that we can get hold of all of them. Potential reviewers might choose to review two books (1000-1250 words) if they think that is of added value.
If you are interested in writing a review, please send an email with your name and institutional affiliation, preferred book, short bio and postal address. We will announce the outcome of our selection by December 10th 2018.

For further details, please contact Giulia Cimini and Senem Ertan, the book reviews editors, at the address above.
