Focus and Scope
The LSE Undergraduate Political Review (LSEUPR) is an online platform that aims to encourage and facilitate an engagement in high level political research by undergraduate students from universities around the world. The LSEUPR invites the application to politics of a range of disciplinary perspectives, both within and without the social sciences, both empirical and theoretical. LSEUPR welcomes submissions that represent any and all voices and is committed to comprehensive representation, inclusivity and equality of access. Ultimately, our purpose is to familiarise undergraduate students with the rigours of the submission and evaluation process and to encourage them to think creatively about how to present their research.
The LSEUPR encourages students to get involved with academic research by:
- Offering undergraduates the opportunity to see their research published in a peer reviewed, academic journal.
- Involving students in a broad spectrum of contemporary political debates by publishing their research in a shorter online blog format.
- Providing undergraduates with a platform to present their research to academics and peers at our annual conference.
- Engaging undergraduates in the research process with our research teams.
In all our activities and publications, the LSEUPR maintains a policy of neutrality and unbiased political opinion. We do not endorse or have a view on any particular political ideology.
The LSE Undergraduate Political Review publishes once annually.
