Open Call for Papers

The Asia-Pacific Journal of Elections and Democracy
Volume 1, Number 2, 2021


Asia-Pacific Journal of Elections and Democracy (APJED) invites theoretical, empirical, and policy-relevant submissions that cover various aspects of electoral processes and/or problems of democratization in the Asia-Pacific. APJED has a multidisciplinary focus, and we, therefore, accept manuscripts grounded in political science, economics, anthropology, cultural and gender studies, history and other related fields. We also have a broad understanding of democracy, ranging from the dynamics of grassroots activism to the operations of elite politics. APJED welcomes both single-country and cross-national comparative studies.  APJED practices a double-blind peer review; the editors-in-chief first conduct an initial review and, if considered of sufficient quality, subsequently send the submission to, at least, two external referees.

Article Submission Deadline:  31 August 2021
