Italian Political Science is now officially indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). The DOAJ has been active since 2003, and includes today over 16,500 journals from a vast array of disciplines, backgrounds and scientific expertise.

Indexing in the DOAJ is granted upon fulfilling a set of scientific activity and relevance criteria: open and free access to all the journal's contents, as well as full compliance with the standards set by the Commons.

IPS is honoured to be part of the DOAJ community, and will continue to raise its publishing and editing standards in support of the values and goals of open-access scientific knowledge and dissemination.
