Critical Acclaim
‘A must read for all graduate students, and yet everyone will learn something. It democratizes the publication process by making critical information available to everyone. Importantly, the authors include reflective commentary on current issues as well: replication, open access, and promoting your own published work. Breuning and Ishiyama are ideal authors on the topic of “how to publish” as they are outstanding scholars with sustained publication records, have top-level editing experience, and reputations as strong mentors to many throughout the discipline.’
– Janet Box-Steffensmeier, Ohio State University, US

‘Breuning and Ishiyama bring a wealth of experience to bear in this excellent “how-to” book. How to Get Published in the Best Political Science and International Relations Journals is a welcome resource for graduate students and early career scholars as they learn about, and navigate, the journal publishing process. In addition to opening the black box of the publishing process itself, the book also provides informative advice on several important issues in publishing, including ethics, data transparency and citations, as well as newer developments, such as open access publishing. It is a resource that I will enthusiastically recommend to colleagues.’
– Jae-Jae Spoon, University of Pittsburgh, US
