About this Journal
The World Political Science Review publishes prize-winning articles nominated by prominent national political science associations around the world, and translated into English. In a field as international as political science, scholars have a vital need to know about important political research produced outside the English-speaking world. WPSR bridges the language barriers that have made this cutting-edge research inaccessible up to now. Articles come from Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Japan, South Korea, The Netherlands, Norway, Lithuania, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United Arab Emirates.
