Quarterly journal of political science

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z gateway : Quarterly journal of political science

“In the last half-century, social scientists have engaged in a methodologically focused and substantively far-reaching mission to make the study of politics scientific. The mutually reinforcing components in this pursuit are the development of positive theories and the testing of their empirical implications. Although this paradigm has been associated with many advances in the understanding of politics, no leading journal of political science is dedicated primarily to the publication of positive political science.” – From the journal’s Editorial Aims page.
