The University of Toronto Journal of Political Science (UTJPS) publishes a yearly, open access, peer-reviewed issue containing original research conducted by academics and students in all fields related to the discipline of political science. The journal seeks to promote the work of a wide range of scholars both in Canada and internationally.


UTJPS was founded in 2015 as a platform for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to publish and encounter high-quality scholarly work and get the chance to contribute to bodies of literature relevant to their research interests. Since then, it has expanded to welcome work from academics and students at all levels. The journal publishes one issue each year comprising full-length, scholarly articles, op-eds, and book reviews.


UTJPS is supported by the University of Toronto (U of T) Libraries' Journal Production Services, the U of T Department of Political Science, and the Graduate Association of Students in Political Science (GASPS). We are thankful for their assistance in ensuring the launch of a high-quality journal.
