Authors should submit papers electronically via the journal's electronic submission system.

Articles should not include the authors personal details; these should be listed (name, contact details and a short authors biography) on a separate document. Files should be in Word or rich text format. Authors should retain one copy of their article on file. Authors should confirm at this point that their article is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

As per our publisher’s policy, European Political Science accepts pre-print submissions, as long as they are not being considered for publication in other journals. However, we ask that authors update their preprint record with a publication reference, including URL link and DOI if their article is accepted for publication.

Please note that authors who share a pre-print version of their manuscript on an online repository may compromise their submission’s anonymity during the peer review process. Authors may be asked to provide a temporary title for the peer review process.


Please contact the Editorial Coordinator ( if you would like to submit a symposium and provide a Special Section title. Once the Editorial Coordinator has notified you that the editors have approved the symposium proposal please submit via our online submission system. Ensure you select 'Symposium' as the article type from the drop-down menu and please note that individual articles of the symposium need to be uploaded as separate submissions. Once you have uploaded all files the system will ask you to complete the 'Manuscript information.' In the 'Keywords, Categories, Special Sections' section please ensure you select the corresponding title of the proposed Symposium from the Special Section drop-down menu.

Editorial queries should be directed to the Editorial Coordinator
