Political Research Exchange (PRX) is the ECPR's first Open Access journal and offers a dynamic platform to advance research, innovation and debate across the breadth of political science. It welcomes significant theoretical, methodological, and empirical contributions from all fields, including comparative politics, international politics/international relations, political communication, political sociology, political thought, public administration, and interdisciplinary work with a predominantly political dimension.
The journal, published online with Gold Open Access and swift publication times, leverages the digital format to deepen and enrich scholarly communication. With significant subsidies on normal upfront OA costs, PRX signals a commitment of the ECPR as a scholarly association to forging a cogent path for the research community at this crucial juncture when academic publishing is becoming fundamentally transformed.
As a Gold Open Access journal, PRX will charge an Author Processing Charge to authors once an article has been accepted for publication. APCs were waived until the end of 2020, but were reinstated from January 2021.
Authors from member institutions should contact Mary Cenci before submitting an article to request the discount code.
PRX invites submissions. To submit your paper, go to the journal website. Aspiring authors can also contact the Editors in Chief Alexandra Segerberg and Simona Guerra.
