It was established in 1980 and is published by Sage Publications on behalf of the International Political Science Association.[1]

Editors' choice and special issues[edit]

Editors' choice collections of articles on a particular theme, selected from past issues, were initiated in 2011. So far there have been collections on ideology, regimes and regime change, political parties and party systems, gender and political behaviour, gender and political institutions and religion and politics. Access to the articles in these collections is free.[2] The journal also occasionally publishes special issues.

Meisel-Laponce Award[edit]

The journal has a cash prize of $1000 for the best article published in the previous four years. The prize was first awarded in 2012 and went to Jorgen Moller and Svend-Erik Skaaning, for Beyond the radial delusion: Conceptualising and measuring democracy and non-democracy. There is free access to the winning and short-listed articles.[3] The next award will be made at the International Political Science Association's World Congress in Istanbul in 2016.
