JPS is an interdisciplinary journal of undergraduate scholarship in the social sciences, published by the Helvidius Group of Columbia University. Founded in 1989, the Journal provides a forum for young scholars to contribute to the global dialogue on a diverse range of issues, including problems of politics, economics, public policy, social phenomena, international relations, and law.
The Editorial Board of the Helvidius Group is seeking submissions of scholarly research from undergraduates in colleges and universities around the world. In addition, the Journal of Politics & Society will award the Peter and Katherine Tomassi Prize of $250 to the author of the article judged most worthy by the Editorial Board in conjunction with faculty at Columbia University.
Successful submissions cover a wide variety of subjects, but share the qualities of original scholarship, cogent argumentation, and thorough research. The best way to get a sense of what the Journal publishes is to read the ”For Authors” page, as well as previous editions of the Journal.
Submissions for the spring 2014 Journal will be accepted until late December or early January.
