Editorial teamEdit

For the 2020–2024 term, the journal is co-led[2] by a 12 member editorial team of Sharon Wright Austin, Michelle Dion, Celeste Montoya, Clarissa Rile Hayward, Kelly Kadera, Julie Novkov, Valeria Sinclair-Chapman, Dara Strolovitch, Aili M. Tripp, Denise Walsh, S. Laurel Weldon, and Elisabeth Jean Wood.[3] This team's term will last until May 2024.[3] The editorial team noted in a publication of the American Political Science Association that, while many journals have had all-male editorial teams, many fewer political science journals have had all-woman teams.[4]

This team follows a 2016–2020[3] editorial team that had been primarily based in Europe, in an attempt to globalize the reach of the American Political Science Review.[5]
