We are pleased to introduce the LSE Undergraduate Political Review (LSEUPR).
The LSEUPR is the first undergraduate political journal housed at LSE. It is run by undergraduate students from across the departments and offers a platform for undergraduates here and around the world to publish their research in one of two forums. Those young academics interested in current, media-facing political issues can submit articles of between 750 and 1,250 words to the LSEUPR Blog. This is a dynamic, accessible outlet for students to treat specific topics in a succinct and lucid way through the presentation of well-researched arguments. Those undergraduates engaged in more extensive academic research can submit their work to the LSEUPR Journal, a peer-reviewed journal that publishes longer, research-driven articles characterised by their originality, rigour and insight. Journal articles range from 4,000 to 6,000 words in length.
The LSEUPR understands “politics” to refer to those institutions, systems, practices, or patterns of human behaviour that involve power, rule, or authority. We also understand the realm of the political to transcend the disciplinary boundaries of political science and to lend itself to multidisciplinary approaches, both empirical and theoretical.
We also aim to provide undergraduate students the opportunity to involve themselves with the administrative and editorial dimensions of the LSEUPR.
The LSEUPR welcomes submissions that represent any and all voices and is committed to comprehensive representation, inclusivity and equality of access.
Please explore the other posts for details on submission criteria and recruitment, and for more about LSEUPR.
We look forward to working with you soon
