Enhancing Research and Building Community 

Organized sections provide an opportunity for groups of APSA members who share a common interest in a particular subfield to organize meetings and coordinate communications under Association auspices. Sections provide the membership with outlets for research and opportunities for scholarship. Sections help encourage the study of political science. They have become a vital part of the Association by sponsoring panels at the Annual Meeting, producing informative newsletters, and recognizing scholarly achievements of their members.

As components of the Association, sections are accountable to its Constitution and are regulated by the Organized Section Committee. Sections also receive logistical support from the national office in collecting dues and maintaining membership lists.

Numerous opportunities for participation exist within each of APSA's organized sections. For more information, review the information below or contact the APSA National Office at [email protected].

Several APSA Organized Sections have sponsored journals, or added journal subscriptions as to their membership benefits. These section journal opportunities provide access to scholarship across a number of fields and include leading journals like Political BehaviorLegislative Studies QuarterlyUrban Affairs ReviewPublius, and Political Analysis.
