About the JOP Blog

The JOP Blog is a platform for authors to present an outline of their articles, that have been accepted and will be published in one of the future editions of The Journal of Politics (JOP).

Established in 1939 and published for the Southern Political Science Association, The Journal of Politics is a leading general-interest journal of political science and the oldest regional political science journal in the United States. The scholarship published in The Journal of Politics is theoretically innovative and methodologically diverse, and comprises a blend of the various intellectual approaches that make up the discipline. The Journal of Politics features balanced treatments of research from scholars around the world, in all subfields of political science including American politics, comparative politics, international relations, political theory, and political methodology.

Prof. Dr. Vera E. Troeger, Chair of Comparative Politics at the University of Hamburg, is Editor in Chief of the journal, which is sponsored by the Southern Political Science Association.
