ECPR Press

ECPR Press, working in partnership with





The ECPR’s publishing arm, ECPR Press publishes cutting-edge research across all fields of political science, international relations and political thought, without restriction in approach or regional focus. The Press is also open to interdisciplinary work with a predominant political dimension.

Our thriving catalogue covers four book series: MonographsEssaysClassics, and the highly regarded Studies in European Political Science. The ECPR Press imprint is published in partnership (from June 2017) with Rowman & Littlefield International (RLI). Drawing on the rich experience of both organisations, the Press will continue to develop and expand on the editorial policy and reputation it has built since its creation in 2005.

Drawn from the political science community, our knowledgeable editors deal with all proposals swiftly, efficiently, and professionally and oversee all projects until they are handed on to RLI for production. Manuscripts are copyedited, typeset, proofed, indexed and printed using RLI’s highly skilled production team in the UK and the US. Authors are then able to harness the combined expertise and reach of the marketing teams at both ECPR and RLI to ensure their book reaches the widest possible audience.

Current series

Studies in European Political Science Edited, multi-authored volumes of cutting-edge research originating from ECPR events such as the Joint Sessions of Workshops and Research Sessions. The Studies series is a significant source of new research, and the ECPR Press’s rigorous, professional publishing and editorial processes are perfectly suited to bringing these influential volumes to publication quickly, so that the material is fresh and relevant to scholars.

Monographs Single-subject research by established and emerging members of the political science profession. The series also includes English translations of work previously published in another language.

Essays Collections of journal articles and essays brought together in a single volume that provide a rich source of material on a single theme or from a single author.

Classics Re-publications of works that have had a significant impact on political science, but were no longer available. Each book includes a new introduction by the author/editor that contextualises the original, and updates the ideas that originally made the book a classic.
