The International Association for Political Science Students is hereby launching a Call for Applications for the position of Deputy Editor-in-Chief of its academic blog A Different View (ADV).
The Deputy Editor-in-Chief is, in cooperation with the Editor-in-Chief, responsible for running the academic blog. The blog operates within the IAPSS Academic Department.
ADV is the popular-scientific blog of IAPSS. As one of the largest student-run blogs, ADV publishes articles dealing with all facets of political theory, foreign policy and international relations, among others. While ADV provides analytical and up-to-date commentary of political issues around the world as well as recent developments in the field of political science, it is not just limited to academia but extends to real-world developments and crises. IAPSS envisions ADV as a place for discussions and free flow of ideas, and an avenue where readers can gain a better understanding of cross-cultural affairs and how politics deeply affects the interactions between and among states as well as individuals.
With a diverse pool of authorship, ADV is an important platform for political science enthusiasts, one which enables and facilitates the sharing of opinions on different issues. ADV is a very much formidable platform for exchanging ideas and perspectives, improving academic writing skills and making convincing points of view about various subjects of utmost importance.
