Academic Services: Publish and Present Your Work

IAPSS gives you the chance to publish your papers and improve your research and writing skills. Our internationally published journals POLITIKON and Encuentro Latinoamericano (ELA) as well as A Different View, our online blog on international affairs, offer possibilities for students of political science and young scholars to publish and present their work. Furthermore IAPSS’ own Academic Think Tank is a ideal structure to work with fellow students on joint publications, to participate in insightful academic debate and to enhance you academic skills.
