European Journal of Political Research (EJPR) is the ECPR's longest-running journal and is consistently one of the highest ranking journals in the discipline. EJPR publishes original and substantial contributions to the study of comparative European politics, specialising in theoretically or methodologically original articles articulating conceptual and comparative perspectives with a broad theoretical relevance, speaking to different academic literatures on a variety of sub-fields and topics.
EJPR welcomes quantitative and qualitative approaches as well as contributions from other sub-disciplines (including international relations and political theory) and geographical areas (including North and South America) that are relevant to the comparative study of politics.
The journal also publishes short research notes, responses to previously published articles that are theoretically relevant, and state-of-the-field review articles on topics of particular relevance to the journal. It also publishes special issues and forum sections.
