Welcome to the British Columbia Political Studies Association
The association exists to provide a forum for Political Scientists in British Columbia, Canada to present and discuss research and to collaborate on matters pertaining to teaching and learning of political science in post-secondary institutions in BC.
The Canadian Political Science Review
The Canadian Political Science Review is an open access journal especially dedicated to the promotion of scholarship, broadly speaking, on politics in Canada. The CPSR aims to stimulate the further intellectual development of political science within the Canadian political science community and in the international community of scholars in the field. It has emerged as a leading venue for the publication and dissemination of research on provincial politics in Canada.
The CPSR was initially published by a partnership between the British Columbia Political Studies Association (BCPSA), the Atlantic Provinces Political Science Association (APPSA) and the Prairie Political Science Association (PPSA). Since it’s beginnning, however, the BCPSA has overseen all aspects of the journal. We thank the University of Northern British Columbia for hosting the the journal at the Geoffrey Weller Library since the very beginning. And we especially thank the staff of that library and the Public Knowledge Project at SFU for managing the OJS system on our behalf.
