I forward a message sent by Maria Spirova:

Hello and hope the year is off to a good start!

I would like to let you know about a new professional development:

Petr Kopecký (Leiden U) and Adam Fagan (Queen Mary, U of London) will be taking over the Journal of Communist Studies and Transition Politics (currently edited at U of Glasgow) and re-launching it as East European Politics in January 2012. I will be joining the editorial team as a book reviews editor.

As you can see from the description enclosed below, we have re-defined the aims and scope of the journal. We are currently encouraging high quality submissions for the first (and following) year of the journal under the new name. We will be happy if you consider it as a venue for your work. If you are interested in submitting a manuscript, please do so through

East European Politics is a refereed journal that publishes articles in the fields of government, politics and international relations of Eastern Europe. Wide in its geographical scope, EEP covers the entire post-communist region, including East Central and South Eastern Europe, Russia and all countries of the former Soviet Union.

The journal publishes original scholarship on political developments in individual East European countries, cross-country comparative analysis, as well as the study of the relations between the region(s) and other parts of the world, including international organizations. EEP does not accept historical studies and submissions that lack direct linkage to contemporary East European politics.

In addition to research articles and substantial book reviews section, EEP publishes thematic special issues. The journal also publishes regular Symposium sections and review articles devoted to briefer analysis of particular events, political issues or important theoretical and conceptual developments. The Editors welcome proposals for these special collections.

All research articles submitted to EEP have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and evaluation by two anonymous referees.

Thank You and Best Wishes,
Maria Spirova
