The school is host to four leading political journals:
Political Studies and Political Studies Review
Political Studies is the flagship journal of the Political Studies Association (PSA) and one of Britain's longest established and most widely respected generalist journals in politics and international relations.
Since 2003, it has been published alongside Political Studies Review, a journal that carries not just an unparalleled range of book reviews but also regular articles and special sections that assess new developments across the discipline.
In July 2011, editorship of both Political Studies and Political Studies Review moved to the School of Politics and International Relations at Nottingham. Being given the editorship of these two journals by the PSA represented a huge achievement, testimony to the school's high standing within the field of political science and its breadth of expertise.

Government and Opposition
Government and Opposition is an ISI ranked international journal of comparative politics published by Cambridge University Press. It publishes peer reviewed papers dealing with any part of the globe, and on any theme, to do with comparative politics, liberally defined. It is tied to no substantive position, nor to any methodological orthodoxy beyond the fundamental principle of intellectual rigour.
It publishes four issues a year. One of these is usually a commissioned 'special issue' on a distinctive theme, and the editors are always open to proposals for such issues. It also publishes substantial review articles, many of which are commissioned, and some of which are the result of proposals made to the review editor.
It is co-edited by Professor Katharine Adeney and Professor Erik Jones.
Parliamentary Affairs, which was established in 1948, is a peer-reviewed academic quarterly covering all aspects of government and political representation directly or indirectly connected with Parliament and parliamentary systems in Britain and throughout the world.
It is co-edited by Professor Philip Cowley and Professor Jonathan Tonge and is published by Oxford University Press in partnership with the Hansard Society.
