Editors' choice and thematic special issues
Editors' choice collections of articles on a particular theme, selected from past issues, were initiated in 2011. So far there have been collections on ideology, regimes and regime change, political parties and party systems, gender and political behaviour, gender and political institutions, religion and politics, the politics of inequality and borders and margins. Access to the articles in these collections is free. The journal also regularly publishes thematic special issues. Recent examples include special issues on electoral quotas, Euroscepticism, Populism in World Politics and Diasporas and Sending States in World Politics.
The journal has a cash prize of $1000 for the best article published in the previous four years. The prize was first awarded in 2012 and went to Jorgen Moller and Svend-Erik Skaaning, for Beyond the radial delusion: Conceptualising and measuring democracy and non-democracy. There is free access to the winning and short-listed articles. In 2016 the prize was awarded to Lingling Qi and Doh Chull Shin for 'How mass political attitudes affect democratization: Exploring the facilitating role critical democrats play in the process'.
The next award will be made at the International Political Science Association's World Congress in Lisbon in 2020.
