Become a reviewer

The strength of Political Perspectives is in its reviewers. Our reviewers help to judge the quality of the work submitted to us and offer comments for improvement prior to publication. If you want to support us in achieving our diverse goals of ensuring high-calibre features while maintaining openness to original thought, then fill out our reviewer application form and we’ll be in touch! We seek experts in all areas of social science, but particularly in sub-disciplines of politics.

Our reviewer registration is also administered by OJS. If you would like to become a reviewer, follow the link below, check the box “Yes, I would like to be contacted with requests to review submissions to this journal” and insert your reviewing interests in the box that will pop up.
