EIU Political Science Review

The EIU Political Science Review is an online journal created specifically for undergraduate students of political science.  The journal consists of a variety of high-quality, peer reviewed undergraduate papers. Nearly any type of political science paper from an Eastern Illinois University Political Science course at the 3000-4000 level can be submitted to the journal including: position papers, analytical critiques, research papers, book reviews, case briefs, and many more.

The journal itself emerged out of the EIU Political Science Department's commitment to the academic and professional development of its students, and it also contributes to growing interest on Eastern's campus in ways to encourage undergraduate students to become active in the research process. And it should benoted that a number of the students who have published in the EIU Political Science Review also have presented their research at conferences or university/college poster sessions.

If you are interested in submitting one of your own works, please read below for more information.
