Founded in 1948, World Politics is an internationally renowned quarterly journal of political science published by Cambridge University Press and produced under the editorial sponsorship of the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies at Princeton.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and resulting disruptions to the global supply change for the manufacture and distribution of printed journals, World Politics is available in digital format only effective March 25, 2020 until further notice. Articles are available for download at the Cambridge University Press website. Print issues will be shipped to subscribers as soon as the effects of this global disruption have subsided.

Submissions to World Politics can only be made directly via the journal’s ScholarOne Manuscripts portal. We do not work with third-party companies that charge a fee for article submission. To submit a manuscript, click on the “Submit an Article” button on this page.
