Australian Journal of Political Science
The Australian Journal of Political Science (Routledge) aims to be a premier academic journal publishing quality peer-reviewed, refereed articles in all areas of political studies. It is the official journal of the Australian Political Studies Association. The editorial team, based at Deakin University, is supported by an Editorial Board and an Editorial Advisory Committee of eminent Australian and overseas specialists covering the major sub disciplines of political science. The Journal publishes articles at the cutting edge of the discipline, characterised by conceptual clarity, methodological rigour, substantive interest, broad appeal, and originality. Shorter articles may be published as research notes. The book review section includes reviews of major books in the field of political studies, and especially books written by academics based in Australia and New Zealand and/or dealing with relevant Australian and New Zealand subjects. The Journal also publishes longer review essays.

The Australian Journal of Political Science is the official journal of the Australian Political Studies Association. The editorial team of the Journal includes a range of Australian and overseas specialists covering the major subdisciplines of political science.
We publish articles of high quality at the cutting edge of the discipline, characterised by conceptual clarity, methodological rigour, substantive interest, theoretical coherence, broad appeal, originality and insight. The Journal features a lively exchange of views and therefore publishes critical comments and responses. Research notes reporting on current research projects, research designs and preliminary findings are also published. All significant books by Australasian political scientists and books investigating Australasian politics are given comprehensive coverage. So too are review articles dealing with either a set of books or emerging themes in the discipline.
All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by two anonymous referees.
