Broad in subject matter, Political Science Quarterly is a professionally refereed journal that publishes articles on both domestic and international politics and policymaking. Although many of PSQ's authors come from the ranks of professional political scientists, the journal encourages relevant submissions from historians, economists, sociologists, and other social scientists, as well as public policy analysts whose work meets the Quarterly's high standards and would interest our multidisciplinary audience.
PSQ is the official journal of The Academy of Political Science and has been published since 1886.

We welcome initial submissions with any conventional citation format, including MLA, APA, and Chicago. Footnotes or endnotes are acceptable at initial submission, and Tables and Figures may be embedded in the text or placed on separate pages at the end of the manuscript.
Authors should prepare a cover page that includes a title, a 250-word abstract, and 5-7 keywords. PSQ uses a double-blind peer review process, therefore all manuscripts should be blinded for review. Authors should be careful to remove any information that may identify them.
Manuscripts should be submitted as PDF files or as MS Word files. Prepare manuscripts in 12-point font, double spaced, with margins of one inch on all sides, and formatted for 8.5 x 11 inch paper. Authors should include as appendices to the main manuscript any material that they believe will eventually publish as Supplementary Online Materials. At initial submission, authors should prepare and upload a separate title page with names, affiliations, and contact information for all authors.
Please note that authors whose manuscripts have been accepted and those invited to revise and resubmit will be required at that stage to use PSQ’s citation style based on the Chicago Manual of Style. These authors will receive separate instructions.
Any further inquires may be made via phone at (212) 870-2506 or email at email@example.com.
