Submit a Research Note

The Italian Journal of Electoral Studies (IJES-QOEQOE) is pleased to accept submissions for a “Research Notes” section. Research Notes are short works of original scholarship. These brief contributions will appear in the online version of the Journal. The submissions will be limited to max 6,000 words and follow the formatting guidelines laid out in the instructions to authors.  Notes are refereed and subject to the same high standards applied to Articles.

The Editorial Team encourages authors to submit original papers with a more limited scope than articles and relevant extensions or replications of previous research. The goal of this section is to promote the dissemination of ideas and findings that would otherwise be ignored. In light of a growing body of research about publication bias, the Editorial Team has elected to provide authors with an opportunity to submit high-quality work that makes narrower contributions to existing electoral studies’ areas of research.

Authors who have questions about the suitability of their submission for the Research Notes section are encouraged to contact the Journal at
