SYMPOSIUM ON CRISIS MANAGEMENT: GOVERNMENT RESPONSES TO DISASTERS WORLDWIDE

Political Science Quarterly (PSQ) invites the submission of manuscripts for a symposium on “Crisis Management: Government Responses to Disasters Worldwide.” Accepted manuscripts will be published in forthcoming issues of PSQ either individually or as part of a series depending on the number of submissions.

We are in the midst of a pandemic. Local, regional, and national governments around the globe have been tasked with swiftly responding and managing an unprecedented health, economic, social and political crisis. PSQ seeks to articles on current, past and possible future crises, including but not limited to COVID-19. We welcome manuscripts that examine from country-specific, comparative, or international perspectives, the politics of public and private crisis management, broadly defined, including questions about leadership, political communication, and public opinion. Manuscripts that might not fit this description will be reviewed as regular PSQ submissions.

Submitted manuscripts must meet the journal’s criteria and will undergo peer review. Those accepted will be published in upcoming issues of PSQ. Submissions should be made through the regular online submission process for the journal at www.psqonline.org. Authors are encouraged to consult the journal’s submission guidelines also available at www.psqonline.org. Authors must indicate—on their cover page—that their submission is part of this special call for papers. Submissions for this symposium will be considered on a rolling basis and will continue until September 15th, 2020. Manuscripts submitted after this date will be reviewed as regular journal submissions.

Published continuously since 1886, PSQ has been the most widely read and accessible scholarly journal on government, politics, and public policy. Broad in its subject matter and dedicated to objective analysis based on evidence, PSQ examines both domestic and international issues. It has no ideological or methodological slant and is edited to be accessible not only to scholars but also to general readers who have a serious interest in public and foreign affairs.
