Call for Proposals: Editorial Search, American Journal of Political Science (2019 – 2022)

MPSA invites proposals from editorial teams to lead and manage the American Journal of Political Science (AJPS). The AJPS is one of the leading general research journals in Political Science. It strives to publish manuscripts that make outstanding contributions to scholarly knowledge about notable theoretical concerns, empirical issues or methodological strategies in any subfield. The editorial team will serve a four-year term beginning in June 2019.

The editorial team has primary responsibility for the integrity, high standards, and ethics of the review process and the publication of articles dedicated to the scientific and public value of Political Science research. We seek proposals that offer a vision and plan for the AJPS to continue to be on the cutting-edge of innovation, excellence, and rigor in the discipline specifically, and in the broader social sciences and inter-disciplinary communities as well.
