Focus and Scope

On Politics is the official academic journal of the Undergraduates of Political Science (UPS). For over fifteen years, we have provided opportunities for undergraduate publishing and have showcased the emerging undergraduate scholarship here at the University of Victoria.
 
On Politics publishes high-quality academic writing from a multitude of theoretical perspectives and sub-fields within the discipline of Political Science, as well as interdisciplinary perspectives. With these broad aims and inclusive features, On Politics presents an accommodating format to disseminate scholarship of a political nature from those who seldom gain the opportunity. On Politics usually publishes twice a year, with occasional special themed issues.

Publicaton Frequency

On Politics presents an accommodating format to disseminate scholarship of a political nature from those who seldom gain the opportunity. On Politics publishes one to two issues per year, at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief.

Submissions are welcomed from students during our Fall and Spring call for papers. Although published articles are typically found within the realm of political science, On Politics does not maintain a stringent allegiance to the discipline per se and welcomes political work from all fields of study.

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
