Open Call for Papers

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


Aims and scope:

The Asia-Pacific Journal of Elections and Democracy invites submissions that cover various aspects of electoral processes and/or problems of democratization in the Asia-Pacific. Both one-country studies and comparative investigations are welcome. The journal has a multi-disciplinary 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. The journal practices a rigorous peer review process; the editors-in-chief first conduct a desk review and, if considered of sufficient quality, subsequently send the submission to at least two external referees.
