Publish with Pi Sigma Alpha

Professor Ferrari pointed out the Pi Sigma Alpha Undergraduate Journal of Politics, produced by that political science honor society. They are soliciting contributions for their Spring 2007 issue:

"To be considered for publication in the Spring 2006 edition, students should submit their papers by February 8th, although we accept manuscripts on a rolling basis. The Journal welcomes submissions from undergraduates of any class or major; submissions from Pi Sigma Alpha members are especially encouraged. Our goal is to publish manuscripts of the highest quality in all areas of Political Science. In general, papers selected for publication have been well-written with a well-developed thesis, compelling argument, and original analysis. We typically publish papers approximately 15-35 pages in length that have been written for an upper level course or as an individual research project. Manuscripts should include a short abstract (roughly 150 words), and citations and references should follow the APSA Style Manual for Political Science. Please make sure that all citations and references are complete and in the APSA style. Submissions must be in the form of a Microsoft Word document and should be e-mailed to Please include name, university, and contact details (mailing address, e-mail address, and phone number). Students may be asked to revise their manuscript before it is accepted for publication. "

This is another great opportunity for undergraduates to get their best work published, and as we've mentioned before, this is but one of many publications out there you can submit to. If you click on the tag below you'll find another dozen journals where you might submit your work. Ask us in the department if you have questions or need advice about the whole process. Good luck!
