New site launched

We are pleased to announce that Acta Politica has a new submission system and is now using Editorial Manager. Our old submission system (EJP Press) will be kept active for papers that are currently already in the system (e.g. under review)

New submissions
If you are submitting for the first time, please ensure you submit to the new submission system.

Submissions currently being processed in the old submission system
For those submissions that are currently under review / awaiting decisions in the old system (EJP press), we will continue with your paper in this system, no action is required from authors. If you are invited to submit a revision, please submit your revision to the old site.
