Founded in 1948, World Politics is an internationally renowned quarterly journal of political science published by Johns Hopkins University Press and produced under the editorial sponsorship of the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). PIIRS is Princeton University's center for research, learning and dialogue on world cultures and global issues.

Open to contributions by all scholars, the editors invite submission of analytical/ theoretical articles, review articles and research notes bearing on problems in international relations and comparative politics. The journal does not publish strictly historical material, articles on current affairs, policy pieces or narratives of a journalistic nature. Articles submitted for consideration are unsolicited, except for review articles, which are usually commissioned, and all submissions are subjected to a triple-blind review process. The journal is published in both print and online versions.
