Political Quarterly welcomes proposals for special issues and special sections of the journal, and for events which promote the journal and publicise recent or forthcoming articles. PQ aims to promote debate and publish articles on issues of politics and public policy that are authoritative, informed by expertise and academic insight, challenging, intellectually demanding and innovative. Proposals should indicate how they will conform to these aims.
Funding is available for workshops, seminars and small conferences related to special issues and sections. Amounts between £500 and £3000 may be applied for, to cover travel costs, room bookings and hospitality, and speaker honoraria. Applicants should note that fees of £200-£400 are also paid to authors of accepted articles and editors of special issues.
