Impact Score* 2.9
The aim of Political Science Research and Methods is to expand the discussion of research in Politics, Political economy, Voting, Econometrics and Social psychology. Democracy research are fields of study within Politics but they also intertwine with concepts in Context (language use). It focuses on Political economy but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Competition (economics), Authoritarianism, Public administration, Government and Legislature.
It investigates Legislature research which frequently intersects with Public economics. Voting behavior is part of Voting studies tackled in it. The Demographic economics study tackled is a key component of adjacent topics in the area of Turnout.
The most cited publications cover a variety of subjects, including Econometrics, Voting, Political economy, Politics and Legislature. While work presented in the published papers provide substantial information on Econometrics, it also covers topics in Regression analysis, Variables and Variation (game tree). While the most cited papers primarily focused on Politics, they also opened dialogues on the discipline of Context (language use).
Politics, Political economy, Voting, Social psychology and Econometrics are the subjects of interest in the journal. The work on Politics tackled in it brings together disciplines like Survey data collection and Demographic economics. The journal focuses on Political economy but sometimes tackles the closely related disciplines such as
The studies in Social psychology featured incorporate elements of Phenomenon, Survey experiment and Politics of the United States. The research topics discussed in the journal include Econometrics as well as Variable (computer science). It facilitates discussions on Polarization (politics) that incorporate concepts from other fields like Panel data and Ideology.
A key indicator for each journal is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.
The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.
The top authors publishing in Political Science Research and Methods (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top authors publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top authors.
Only papers with recognized affiliations are considered
The top affiliations publishing in Political Science Research and Methods (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top affiliations publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top affiliations.
The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions in the journal edition to all articles published within that journal. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the journal.
The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.
During the most recent 2021 edition, 58.72% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 46.67% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 13.33% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 24.44% of all publications and 15.56% were from other institutions.
A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of journals they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same journal from year to year.
The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the journal in relation to all participants in a given year.
The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.
Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing in a journal. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a journal, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).
The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:
The chart below illustrates experience levels of first authors in cases of publications with multiple authors.
