About the Journal
Politics is located at Newcastle University. We are a pluralist politics and international studies journal that welcomes all approaches, theories, methods, and empirical cases. We exist to publish the very best in original, timely, research-led reflections on politics and international studies. You can read more about our editorial ethos in our inaugural editorial (click to download, pdf)
We aim to provide a swift, responsive and informative review process. We aim to provide every author - even those rejected from the journal - with feedback that will improve their work. You can read more about our review process in our 2013 editorial (click to download, pdf)
Over the past 18 months we have increased the amount of work we publish on learning and teaching in Politics and we encourage further submissions in this area. Ultimately we aim to be a primary destination for research-led reflection on learning and teaching in politics and international studies.
We also welcome proposals for special issues or sections.
