APSA Preprints

Dear Section Members,

APSA Preprints is a new platform dedicated to early research outputs in political science. Authors can upload unpublished content—including working/conference papers, presentations, and posters—to stake an early claim to their research, obtain a DOI, and solicit feedback from peers.

APSA Preprints accepts all types of political science research, broadly defined. Each preprint is uploaded to one of thirteen sub-fields. The best part? APSA Preprints is 100% free to browse and upload—and you can sign in using your APSA account.

APSA Preprints is a collaborative endeavor between the American Political Science Association and Cambridge University Press. Since its launch in August, 2019, users have uploaded more than 65 working papers, some of which have been downloaded more than 1,000 times. Some popular titles include “Who Will Defend Democracy? Evaluating Tradeoffs in Candidate Support Among Partisan Donors and Voters” (Nyhan et al.) and “Transparency in Practice and Qualitative Research” (Kapiszewski and Karcher).

To learn more about APSA Preprints and upload your working paper, presentation, or poster, visit preprints.apsanet.org.  Please contact preprints@apsanet.org if you have any questions.
