Brazilian Political Science Review

The Brazilian Political Science Review is an open access journal, published by the Brazilian Political Science Association and is the only political science and international relations journal published in English in Brazil. The main goal of the BPSR is to support the diffusion of high-quality political science work produced both in Brazil and abroad, thus contributing to the exchange of ideas within the international political science community.

BPSR is covered by the following abstracting and indexing services: Scielo, International Political Science Abstracts, Latindex, Sumário de Revistas Brasileiras, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and ProQuest. BPSR is also classified as quality A2 by CAPES.

The BPSR welcomes submissions of articles, ongoing research notes and review essays from political scientists and researchers from related disciplines. The scope of the journal is broad as it accepts submissions representing the entire range of political science research – theoretical or empirical, cross-national or focused on a single-country, quantitative or qualitative.
