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. EJPR 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. The full EJPR archive is now available online via the Wiley-Blackwell platform.

Political Data Yearbook (PDY) and PDY:Interactive

EJPR also features at the end of each volume, the double-issue length Political Data Yearbook (PDY)PDY contains comprehensive and authoritative data and analysis of electoral results, national referenda, changes in government, and institutional reforms for a range of countries, within and beyond the EU (all EU member states, plus Australia, Canada, Iceland, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, and the United States). Recognised experts on the politics of each country provide commentary on these events, as well as on the principal issues in national politics during the year.

Its online version, PDY:Interactive (PDYi), is a unique data source building on the PDY content, which is freely available to the profession. PDYi provides the data in a fully searchable and downloadable format. Users can view different types of data in graphical format, customise by adjusting time settings or selecting parties to view, and download full datasets (with footnotes), making it a highly flexible and indispensible resource.
