The International Journal of Political Theory is a Canadian-originated open access journal looking to expand the scope of political theory, discover, and comment on current discourse in the fields of political science, international law, philosophy, sociology, and economics. The scope of the journal tackles the key problems the new world faces, and offers a unique perspective; global political phenomena through the lens of how all of the recurring observations fit into theoretical constructions, and what implications they have on moral, economic, societal, and physical terms. It welcomes unorthodox and provocative new arguments. The team is especially inclined towards the introduction of new theoretical compositions and observations; groundbreaking arguments combining the several fields the journal overviews.
The nature of the journal is multi-disciplinary; in fact, multi-disciplinary studies are highly encouraged, and the journal hopes to—as opposed to mainstream journals in political theory—fix the major methodological and cognitive ills of the field that are diagnosable through experience and study in multiple disciplines. 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 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.
All in all, the editorial board of the International Journal of Political Theory is proud to present this multi-disciplinary theory journal to all seekers of knowledge. All papers are guaranteed to offer new and interesting perspectives on the fields in question.
