Q: Can you recommend a political science journal for my paper?

Detailed Question -

I am a Ph.D. student in the department of political science and now I am conducting a research in my field of study but I don't have prior experience of publishing articles in international journals. Therefore, can you recommend a journal where I can submit my paper?

1 Answer to this question

It is difficult to recommend a journal without going through the entire study. There are many journals that publish studies conducted in the field of political science. You can find a list of subject specific journals in the journal list published by Clarivate Index. The target journal for publication will depend on the specific area of your research, the study design, target audeince, and final results. As you have mentioned that you are now conducting your research, you should wait for your final results to finalize a journal.

It is however advisable that you read academic articles relevant to your research and prepare a list of target journals in which you aim to publish. This will also provide you an idea of the kind and amount of work you will need to do to be able to publish in those journals. Some journals in the field of political science are American Journal of Political Science, British Journal of Political Science, etc.
