Xavier Journal of Politics

The goal of the Xavier Journal of Politics (XJOP) is to provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to produce and share high quality research that makes a substantive contribution to the fields of Political Science, including American Politics, International Relations, Comparative Politics, Public Policy, and Political Theory.  Starting in 2024, the Xavier Journal of Politics became a student-run publication by the Xavier University chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honors society.
