Ovid International Political Science Abstracts

International Political Science Abstracts (IPSA), produced since 1951 by the International Political Science Association, is the authoritative global standard in support of scholarly research in political science and proximate disciplines. This resource tool provides abstracts of virtually all the relevant articles published in journals (and yearbooks) around the world, helping researchers and students efficiently locate and exploit the latest in the professional literature.

Topics include method and theory; political thinkers and ideas; political and administrative institutions; political processes (public opinion, attitudes, parties, forces, groups, and elections); international relations; and national and area studies.

Abstracts are in English; the titles of articles written in other languages are provided in both the original language and in English.

The database on the Ovid platform covers published articles since 1989, with over 173,000 records currently available, and approximately 8,000 new records are added annually.
