Polis – Journal of Political Science

Founded in 1994 within the company IMAS Marketing and Polls, the Polis Journal became, before long, an important place where  Romanian and European specialists in political theory and science could make their opinions known. At a time when the political science  community of post-totalitarian Romania had just begun to form, Polis managed to became famous both through the contributions of  Romanian specialists in the field and, especially, through the translation of a series of important contemporary political science authors.

At present, Polis operates under the auspices of the Faculty of Political and Administrative Sciences of “Petre Andrei” University of Iasi, and is open to all those interested in the normative and empirical aspects of politics. The journal is the property of the “Petre Andrei” University of Iasi, which provides the necessary funding for its functioning. The journal can also be financed by donations from public institutions, as a result of winning cultural or scientific research projects.

 The Polis Journal aims to support the scientific endeavours of academics and professionals from the fields of political science and social  sciences in general, who are interested in building, within a standardised and rigorous framework which complies with all the national and  international academic standards, an environment open to all kinds of debates on topics of interest for the Romanian society.

 The journal is published quarterly and is available both in printed form and online. Its pages are devoted to studies, reviews, and debates  related to the fields of political theory and science and also to ideological analysis. Moreover, the journal’s editors encourage the publication  of studies referring to the history of political ideas and to political philosophy.
