The members of the 2014 American Journal of Political Science Editorial Board are now listed on the AJPS website. As you can see, the Board is composed largely of mid-career political scientists, along with a few junior faculty members and another set of senior scholars. All of the Board members are active researchers who are highly productive and visible figures within the discipline. Taken together, they cover all of the major subfields and most of the current lines of scholarly inquiry within political science.
The members of the Editorial Board will be involved very actively in processing manuscripts that are submitted to the Journal. Not only will Board members review submissions on a regular basis; they will also help me determine which manuscripts are sent out for external review in the first place. I know that I will be able to count on them for great advice and strong assistance in maintaining the AJPS at its position as one of the foremost publication outlets for groundbreaking and high-quality research across the entire social science community. Of course, the Editorial Board also will be a major force in guiding the American Journal of Political Science to new heights of research excellence!
