Political Research Online is a collaborative project promoted by the American Political Science Association in cooperation with several international and national associations and research institutes. Sponsored by the Mellon Foundation, PROL is an open access repository operating as a common resource for all emerging scholarship in political science. Membership is totally free and a valid e-mail address is the only requirement to access abstracts, quotations and full-text documents — more than 20,000 are available in pdf format. Once logged in, each member can submit his/her own paper in order to have it published on the website, without any restrictive policy — not even for the chosen language, although vast majority of papers are in English. An advanced search engine is provided, with multiple keys options, along with a quick search organized by title, full-text and other indexing features. With its basic but somehow efficient design and structure, this website represent an excellent tool for the promotion and circulation of scholarship information worldwide.
