European Political Science (EPS) is the professional journal of the ECPR, devoted to publishing contributions written by and for the political science community, encompassing comparative politics, political economy, international relations, public administration, political theory, European studies and related disciplines.
The journal serves as a prime outlet for original research on substantial topics covering comparative politics and the political profession.
