These section journal opportunities provide access to scholarship across a number of fields and include leading journals like Political Behavior, Legislative Studies Quarterly, Urban Affairs Review, Publius, and Political Analysis.

APSA Connect

Each organized section has an online community located on APSA Connect.  This community promotes discussion between section members, allows documents to be shared, as well as section wide announcements to easily be made.  Section members are able to receive daily notifications when a new message has been posted to their section forums.

Annual Meeting Panels

Organized Sections are responsible for constructing panels at the Annual Meeting based on the submissions they receive from their annual call for proposals.  These panels are the basis of the Annual Meeting program.

Member Highlight

“I’ve also worked with others to create a space for migration and citizenship scholars, initially through a working group, then a related group, and then we founded our own Section on Migration and Citizenship. Now the highlights of my APSA meetings include the panels this section creates, as well as its business meetings and fabulous receptions. I served as Section Co-President and then Secretary for a total of four years, which also allowed me to better connect with APSA staff and scholars in other sections and subfields.” – Els de Graauw
