The American Journal of Political Science is taking its end-of-the-year hiatus from Saturday, December 12, 2015, until Monday, January 11, 2016. During this one-month period, no new or revised manuscripts will be accepted, although all other Journal operations will continue unabated. Thus, we will continue to process incoming reviews, and I will issue editorial decisions on manuscripts as soon as sufficient information is available to do so.
Unfortunately, authors will not be able to check the status of manuscripts through the Editorial Manager system during the hiatus. We apologize for any inconvenience that this causes. If you wish to check the status of your manuscript, please send an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond to you as soon as possible. Please include the AJPS manuscript number and title in your request.
On behalf of the entire American Journal of Political Science Editorial Staff, I want to wish you a wonderful holiday season and a very happy New Year! Again, we will resume full operations on Monday, January 11, 2016.
William G. Jacoby
Editor, American Journal of Political Science
