The IJPT | ISSN 2371-3321
The International Journal of Political Theory (IJPT) is a political theory journal that publishes provocative new theories in the field of political theory and philosophy. The IJPT is open-access, peer-reviewed and published semi-annually. By its nature, its scope is multi-disciplinary, making it the only multi-disciplinary journal of political theory. Submissions are accepted from the fields of political science, philosophy, religion, history, economics, sociology, and others. General themes covered include but are not limited to commentary on the "clash of civilizations", human rights discourse, and older discourse on progenitorial political thinkers and their respective theories. The journal encourages challenging and provocative submissions.
Aims and Scope
The International Journal of Political Theory keeps in touch with relatively recent every-day political issues that reverberate throughout the world. Submissions regarding studies on the topic of political theory, the relationship between religion and politics, and other related articles have relevance to the contemporary world. Major issues include discourse on the "clash of civilizations", human rights discourse, modern struggles with religion, political philosophical topics, democratization, and others.
The nature of the journal is multi-disciplinary; in fact, research of inter-disciplinary nature is highly encouraged, and the journal hopes to fix the major methodological and cognitive ills of the field that are diagnosable through experience and study in multiple disciplines—as opposed to other mainstream journals. As the reader is well aware of, economics, politics, law, and all other fields of social study overlap each other, especially in the globalized world we face today. Political theories are rarely isolated from their "non-political" sciences. For this reason, instead of the IJPT being a specialized journal having a single source of an ideological stream, it hopes to be a database of a wide range of foundational, interdisciplinary theories revolving around the subject of the numerous sciences listed above.
What is important for the editorial team is the uniqueness and provocativeness of the contribution: the IJPT is meant to be a journal for provocative, ground-breaking discoveries and theories. The IJPT covers a wide range of studies around the focus of political theory, ranging from Political Science and Philosophy to Economics, Religious Studies, and History. The IJPT is theory-oriented, all submissions should be tied to new, preferably provocative theoretical conceptions of contemporary political phenomena.
