Canadian Political Science Review

The Canadian Political Science Review is an open-access, peer-reviewed electronic review of political science research undertaken by Canadians or about Canada. It invites manuscripts that address any issue of interest to political scientists and especially to its membership in the British Columbia Political Studies Association (BCPSA), the Atlantic Provinces Political Science Association (APPSA) and the Prairie Political Science Association (PPSA). The CPSR aims to stimulate the further intellectual development of political science within the Canadian political science community and in the international community of scholars in the field.

Changes in Editorial Team


Tracy Summerville, who has supplied the guidance of a lead editor along with hours and hours and hours of effort, is leaving the Canadian Political Science Review.  We would like to thank Tracy and her team at UNBC for their good spirit and indominable efforts and wish Tracy well in her new adventures.

Gary Wilson (UNBC) and Alan Siaroff (Lethbridge) are joined by Alexander Netherton (VIU) as a new co and administrative editor.

The journal is published by the British Columbia Political Science Association (BCPSA). At present, our plan is to set up a competition for rotating editorships from three regional associations: the BCPSA, Prairie Political Science Association (PPSA) and the Atlantic Provinces Political Science Association (APPSA).
