SISP journals

SISP publishes two disciplinary journals:

Italian Political Science Review/Rivista Italiana di Scienza Politica

Founded in 1971 by Giovanni Sartori, the Italian Political Science Review is recognized as the leading publication of the Italian political science community, contributing to its growth and development. More than four decades after its launch, IPSR / RISP continues to publish high quality contributions and original peer-reviewed research made by political scientists and the best young scholars from Italy and around the world. IPSR / RISP embraces all approaches to political science research, with no restrictions on any particular theory, method or topic. The journal publishes three issues a year in English and employs a rigorous double-blind peer review process. Since 2015 IPSR / RISP has been published by Cambridge University Press. The current editors are Lorenzo De Sio and Sylvia Kritzinger.

Italian Political Science

Italian Political Science (IPS) was established in 2007 by Maurizio Cotta and Giliberto Capano. It is currently directed by Giuliano Bobba and Antonella Seddone. IPS is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to deepening the understanding of political phenomena relevant to political scientists and all those with an interest in politics. It publishes intellectually stimulating and conceptually rigorous contributions on all areas relevant to political science. All articles include a focus on contemporary Italy, either considered as a case-study or in comparative or European perspective.
