American Journal of Political Science

The American Journal of Political Science (AJPS), the official journal of the Midwest Political Science Association, is one of the most widely read political science journals. The AJPS is a general-interest journal open to all members of the profession and to all areas of the discipline of political science. Research in all major areas of political science, including American politics, public policy, international relations, comparative politics, political methodology, and political theory, is presented. The journal is committed to significant advances in knowledge and understanding of citizenship, governance, and politics, and to the public value of political science research.  

The AJPS is published in January, April, July, and October each year. It is supported by the Michigan State University Department of Political Science and the MSU College of Social Science.
