European Journal of Political Research publishes original and substantial contributions to the study of comparative European politics. We specialise in articles articulating conceptual and comparative perspectives with a broad theoretical relevance, speaking to different academic literatures on a variety of sub-fields and topics. We welcome both quantitative and qualitative approaches as well as contributions from other sub-disciplines (including international relations and political theory) and geographical areas (including North and South America) that are relevant to the comparative study of politics. Authors are strongly encouraged to reflect deeply on the broader theoretical implications of their empirical research so as to engage as broad an audience as possible. Likewise, reviewers are expected to evaluate and stimulate the broader theoretical contributions of the submitted pieces.
EJPR also publishes short research notes, responses to previously published articles that are theoretically relevant, and state-of-the-field review articles on topics of particular relevance to the journal. It also publishes special issues and forum sections.
Manuscripts accepted for publication in the EJPR are required to be in line with the common ECPR policy on data access and research transparency.
