AJPS is on a temporary hiatus.

The American Journal of Political Science is taking a temporary hiatus while we transition to an interim editorial team. No new or revised manuscripts will be accepted and no editorial decisions on manuscripts will be made, although other editorial office operations by editorial staff will continue. We will resume full operations as soon as possible. Information about the interim editorial team will be forthcoming soon from the MPSA council.

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 and we will respond to you as soon as possible. Please include the AJPS manuscript number and title in your request.

A Statement from MPSA Leadership (April 20, 2018)

Dear Colleagues:

On Thursday, April 19, 2018, the MPSA council held an emergency board meeting and voted unanimously to 1) accept Professor William Jacoby’s resignation as AJPS editor, effectively immediately, and 2) move quickly forward with installing a team of interim editors. We will share details as soon as the terms of our agreement with the interim team are finalized. The MPSA Council is preparing a statement that will be shared with the membership in the next several days.

Liz Gerber, MPSA President
Vince Hutchings, MPSA Past President
Sarah Binder, MPSA President-Elect
Will Morgan, MPSA Executive Director
