Taiwanese Journal of Political Science

Taiwanese Journal of Political Science (known until March 2009 as Political Science Review) is a professional journal aimed at exploring issues related to Political Science. It was founded with the aim of inspiring Taiwanese research in political science in March, 1990. After a decade of efforts by students and faculty in our department, as well as other students in the same field, the academic prominence and influence of this journal has been widely recognized. It has been incorporated into the Taiwan Social Science Citation Index database since 2000.

Originally issued biannually, Taiwanese Journal of Political Science has been issued on a quarterly basis since June of 2004. The department expects it to become the most prominent and representative political science journal in the Chinese academic world. It emphasizes generality and comprehensiveness, and thus welcomes a variety of theories and analyses related to politics and political phenomena in all fields, such as political theory, international relations, public administration, cultural studies, and other broader subfields of social science and/or social philosophy. Taiwanese Journal of Political Science welcomes submissions from all over the Chinese academic world, in Taiwan and overseas. Our department expects that it will become an arena in which academic professionals from different backgrounds and generations can inspire one another.
