Anyone may submit an original article to be considered for publication in the Albanian Journal of Politics provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Before publication authors are requested to assign copyright to the publisher; they retain their right to reuse the material in other publications, written or edited by themselves, and due to be published at least one year after initial publication in the AJP.
General Submission Rules
Any original work in the field of political science can be submitted (see also the Aims and Scope of the journal). Submitted articles must not have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic). Publication in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to the AJP, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at AJP.
