Political Studies Review provides a unique intellectual space for rigorous high-quality peer reviewed original research across political science and the study of politics in related fields that aims at stimulating wide-ranging debate and cutting edge discussion of current disputes and issues in the discipline within the UK and internationally. 


The journal seeks to bridge the intellectual boundary of why political science matters through enhancing understanding and dialogue both within the political science profession, across disciplinary subfields and outside the scholarly community. It is therefore aims to be more eclectic in terms of content, style and subject matter to maximise public reach. As such, PSR publishes four types of contributions: original research articles, review articles, professional sections and commissioned book reviews.
