First review round: 11.0 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

Motivation:
After revising and resubmitting the manuscript it took the editors half a year to get back to me with a decision. Apart from that, the quality of reviews was high and the overall process was good.

Aims and Scope

Political parties are intrinsic to every democratic political system, and with the dramatic changes that regularly sweep the political landscape, the study of their function and form is one of the most dynamic areas within contemporary scholarship. Party Politics is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of this integral component within political science.

This major international journal provides a forum for the analysis of political parties, including their historical development, structure, policy programmes, ideology, electoral and campaign strategies, and their role within the various national and international political systems of which they are a part.
