Recent Editor's Report

Current Issue: Volume 111, Issue 3, August 2017

Note from the Editors: In this issue's Notes from the Editor, we are pleased to announce our collaboration with Overleaf, a cloud-based LaTeX editor, which makes writing, editing, and submitting manuscripts quicker and easier for authors using LaTeX. After having implemented FirstView and a new format of Letters, we are currently preparing to release our LaTeX template with Overleaf. Our goal is to improve our services to our contributors by facilitating easy online manuscript preparation, editing, and one-click submission directly into our managing system, Editorial Manager. We believe that this new tool is particularly helpful for collaborations, which have increasingly grown to characterize the bulk of APSR submissions. Our aim is to serve the changing needs of our contributors with the most effective solutions, and to fulfill our core purpose of encouraging academic collaboration while improving our service to our contributors.

Letters: In the May issue, the APSR editors also introduced their first innovation for the journal: the letter format. The editors wrote, “Letters provide an opportunity to report about original research that moves the subfields of political science forward as they develop alongside their counterparts in related disciplines.” The editors anticipate these will be short pieces of no more than 4,000 words.
