Meet Sabine Carey, New Associate Editor for the American Political Science Review

Carey_WebSabine Carey is professor of political science at the University of Mannheim. Her research focuses primarily on armed conflict and repression. She is currently working on the escalation of conflict supported by an ERC Starting Grant. Previously she was working group leader of the Center for the Study of Civil War and served, among others, as vice president and program co-chair of the International Studies Association. Her work has been published with Cambridge University Press and Routledge, and her articles appeared, for example, in International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Peace Research, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Political Research Quarterly, European Union PoliticsInternational Interaction, and Democratization. She is currently associate editor of the Journal of Peace Research and on the editorial boards of the British Journal of Political Science, International Studies Review, and the Journal of Global Security Studies.

From September 1, 2016, on, submissions to the APSR will be directed to the new Editorial Team in Europe. The University of North Texas (UNT) team will begin the transfer of files to the managing office at the University of Mannheim and we expect the transition to be completed by December 31, 2016. With a backlog of two volumes, the first volume of our editorship will be published in August 2017. The vote by the APSA Council to move the editorship of APSR for the first time outside the United States is an extraordinary historical decision that will help to further globalize APSR and thus to represent our discipline in a broader manner. We are excited by this challenge and very grateful for the confidence expressed in our team by the APSA council to host the Review in Europe for the next four years. At the same time, we are aware of the concerns about this transition and would like to take this opportunity to share with the membership our general vision and plans for the journal as we move forward in this process.
