How to publish in this journal


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. Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
