"Journals of political theory tend mainly to deal with the history of political thought. But the Journal of Theoretical Politics is different. It is concerned with thinking about problems in a systematic way which makes it unique in and important to the profession. We should constantly remind ourselves that a science without theory is a poor science" - Giovanni Sartori
Journal of Theoretical Politics is the major journal for publication of work concerned with the development of theory in the study of political processes. It provides an authoritative forum for the publication of original papers that seek to make genuinely theoretical contributions to the study of politics.
The journal offers rigorous articles on a range of theoretical topics. It focuses on new theoretical work that is broadly accessible to political scientists and enhances an understanding of political processes.
