The American Journal of Political Science, like most other major journals in political science, takes a one-month break during the summer. This year, the AJPS summer hiatus runs from Saturday, July 16, 2016 through Tuesday, August 16, 2016. During this period no new or revised manuscripts can be submitted, although all other Journal operations continue unabated. So, 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.
Please remember to mark your calendars if you plan to send your work to the American Journal of Political Science sometime in the near future: Again, the AJPS Editorial Office will be closed to new and revised submissions from July 16, 2016, until August 16, 2016.
