Asian Journal of Comparative Politics

Official partner

The Asian Journal of Comparative Politics (AJCP) targets the publication of theoretically or methodologically original articles that articulate conceptual and theoretical perspectives in Comparative Politics, and it welcomes both quantitative and qualitative approaches. AJCP also targets the publication of short research notes that outline on-going research in more specific areas of study.

AJCP is for political scientists all over the world. The core field of the journal is Comparative Politics with the focus on Asia. The journal covers all topics in this field; political behaviour and leadership (e.g., elections, corruption, and consensual versus dictatorial systems); institutions and regime (e.g., executives, legislatives and judiciaries, authoritarianism versus democracy); state-society relations (e.g., weak state and strong society); political culture (e.g., compliance prone versus defiance prone norms); and foreign policy and globalization (e.g., proactive versus reactive diplomacy and permeated versus isolated society). As Asia has a potential as one of the frontiers of comparative studies, it would also help generate new hitherto fore unknown findings in the West.

However, this does not mean that the journal does not accept interdisciplinary approaches bridging the gap between Comparative Politics and other subfields of Political Science. For instance, the journal touches international relations. In an era of deep and wide globalization especially in a dynamic and diverse region called Asia, it is unthinkable for a journal of politics not to deal with international relations and global politics. The journal also seeks to bridge the gap between Political Science and other related fields such as Economics, History, Sociology, Psychology, and Medical Science. It is open to other academic areas and appreciates the benefits that emerge from those original research articles and notes of different academic traditions.
