The title of the Panel as a twofold goal. From the one hand is interested to focus on how political scientists do their job. On the other side it is interested in collecting innovative contributions regarding the most challenging theoretical and methodological issues (through which doing better political science).
Thus on the first topic, we welcome papers capable to enlighten some practical dynamics through which the profession is developing. Relevant issues here can be: the lines through which different schools or research streams cite each others; the most common venues of publication; the international dimension of doing political science.
On the second topic, we obviously expect papers presenting innovative, and even provocative, perspectives on concepts which are particularly challenging those interested in doing political science. For example: mechanistic explanation; simulation and modelling; time and politics; political learning and policy success.
