POLICY & POLITICS POLITICAL STUDIES AND POLITICAL STUDIES REVIEW AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM Political Studies is the flagship journal of the Political Studies Association of the U.K. and one of Britain’s longest established and most widely respected generalist journals in politics and international relations. Since 2003, it has been published alongside Political Studies Review, a journal that carries not just an unparalleled range of book reviews but also regular articles and special sections that assess new developments across the discipline. Published by Wiley-Blackwell, both journals are in the top half of Thomson’s ISI Citations Index with Political Studies ranked 34 th and Political Studies Review 62 nd of 139 listed journals. On 1st July, 2011, editorship of the journals moved to a new team based in the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Nottingham. As well as being one of the largest departments in the U.K., the School also has a presence at the University’s campuses in China and Malaysia and was in the top dozen research outfits in the last Research Assessment Exercise. So the journals are now based in a department with a really excellent research base and a truly global outreach. We provide an excellent service to authors: rapid turn around times, early publication online and publicity for the most impactful work. And your work will be seen by your colleagues. Hard copies of both journals find their way into the inbox of all members of the UK PSA. As well as being committed to publishing the very best stand-alone papers, we are also interested in proposals for ‘special sections’ which may bring together papers around a particular theme or issue. Our one criterion is academic excellence. We aim to be the journal of choice for really first-rate academic work from any part of our diverse discipline and from across the globe.
