IPSA Research Committee 33 (on the ‘Study of Political Science as a Discipline’) wants to contribute to the Global Study on the Development of the Discipline by providing an overview of publications on the state of the art of Political Science both in countries and on continents (or parts of them), whether these are journal articles, book sections, books, conference papers, academic dissertations or other relevant sources. Publications are ordered by country name (in the English alphabetical order), then in alphabetical order by author name. If publications cover more than one country or continent, they are mentioned under all country/continent names. An additional label entitled ‘The Discipline’ has also been created (covering topics related to the longitudinal analysis of Political Science expansion, independently of the country), together with labels referring to international and national political science associations (e.g. IPSA, EPCR, APSA, etc.). There is no time limit with regard to the discipline’s development, as the discipline often is older than generally assumed while older developments may still be relevant. The ‘Global Study on the Development of Political Science Database’ (GSPS ) helps to map the global development of the discipline and allows recognizing both national and regional or continental developments.
