The Indian Journal of Political Science IJPS (A Peer Reviewed Journal) is the quarterly Journal published by the Indian Political Science Association in March, June, September, and December every year. Started in 1939, the 1JPS is one of the most reputed and refereed journals of Political Science at the international level and, in fact, the foremost journal of the discipline at the national level. The journal has over the years evolved as a major publication of scholarly works on ideas and issues important to the study of politics. It seeks to promote greater collaboration and exchange of ideas among political scientists in India and abroad. The position of the Editor of the Indian Journal of Political Science had been occupied by senior and renowned political scientists of the country at various points of time.

The IJPS has completed more than 80 years of its publication. The periodicity and regularity of IJPS at national and international levels have also increased tremendously. The website of the journal has been providing most of the updated information. The national and global abstracting and indexing of the papers published in the IJPS has also been restored to a great extent. The UGC-CARE list of the University Grants Commission has also included it in the recognized journals. The size of the journal has grown substantially and its representative character has made the journal truly a publication of a national body with a global association. The increase in the number of papers and book reviews published per issue has given the IJPS a global face. It has become the best avenue of interaction and dialogue between Indian political scientists as well as the international community.

I invite you to contribute academically to the IJPS and enrich it by your intellectual inputs.

Warm regards
