Aims & Scope

POST – Nordic Journal of Political Science and Theory is a refereed academic journal and offers an inclusive venue for political science debates in interpretive and “post” approaches. The journal aims to establish new ways of science publishing, following and setting trends and utilising new technological means to disseminate academic knowledge.

POST is a refereed academic journal which creates a forum for the publication of innovative writing and access to debates that do not get exposure elsewhere. Already canonised established journals reproduce the canon. Even though academic writing is all about inquiry, argument and discussion, these practices are regularily stowed away ahead of the actual publication. Due to these conservative practices, and to the speed of which society and the world of knowledge is currently developing, science publishing is at risk of bracketing/marginalising itself. We believe that science publishing needs to be more about the peer review process rather than gate keeping. POST will be leading the way for new practices in publishing where processes commonly hidden away, here are part of the gaingings.

POST invites original, scholarly articles that discuss the education and learning of adults from different academic disciplines, perspectives and traditions. It encourages diversity in theoretical and methodological approach and submissions from non-English speakers. All published contributions in POST are subjected to a rigorous peer review process based on two moments of selection: an initial editorial screening and a double-blind review by at least two anonymous referees. Clarity and conciseness of thought are crucial requirements for publication.

POST is published on behalf of xxxx).
