How to Lose Weight

"However, since these are not peer reviewed, how much weight should a hiring committee give to these types of publications?"

Not much in my opinion, but they should still count for something.

nice blog about Venue (Publishing) thanks for sharing!!


I would also add that the law review process involves rigorous cite-checking of every piece of evidence and every claim that the author makes - a process that not many peer-reviewed journals I know about go through. In my mind, that makes the findings published in law reviews quite valuable, just in a different way.


I'd say there's a lot of agreement on the top three: 1) American Political Science Review; 2) American Journal of Political Science; and 3) Journal of Politics. After that, there's debate, especially when it comes to subfield-specific journals. Clearly Law and Society Review is a solid journal for judicial scholars, but it's not always hospitable to empirical judicial behavior work. The articles Bob cites are handy for ranking the rest of the journals.



In your post, you wrote:

"Political scientists are familiar with the hierarchy of political science journals"

Is there a reliable website that you (or anyone else) could recommend that offers this kind of information? I'm not a political scientist, and I'd be curious to learn what the most respected journals in the field are.
