Focus 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.
