By Joanna Skrzypczyńska and Paulina Pospieszna, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań
Internationalization, a relatively new phenomenon in the social sciences in Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries, is one of the most challenging and important areas for political science in this region (Crăciun 2018). In the area of research, internationalization primarily includes publishing in peer-reviewed international journals (Pohoryles and Cvijetic 2002). This article focuses on publications in peer-reviewed journals in general and, more specifically, on factors that may explain why Polish scholars lag behind their Western European counterparts.
