A landmark publication of the International Political Science Association, the International Political Science Abstracts provides abstracts of political science articles published in journals and yearbooks worldwide on the most important topics in the discipline. Started in 1951 as a printed journal, it covers nowadays over 1,000 journals. In each issue articles are classified by six main categories such as methods and theory, international relations, national and area studies, etc. Abstracts are mostly in English, while French is used for articles written in languages other than English whenever an author’s English version is not available. Titles in languages other than English are also translated into English. Access to the International Political Science Abstracts online database (over 280,000 records from 1989 to the present, updated four to six times a year with about 8,000 records added annually) is available only by subscribing EBSCO or Ovid, professional database suppliers. IPSA members can access it by paying an additional fee to the association. Free trial is available to all users. The International Political Science Abstracts is also available in print version, published bi-monthly by the International Political Science Association in Paris.
