Founded in 1994, Pôle Sud. A South European Political Journal is a bi-annual academic journal sponsored by the CNRS (South European Center for Political Studies – CEPEL), as well as the Faculty of Law and Political Science of the University of Montpellier.
It publishes research in political science with an emphasis, since its creation, on Southern Europe. These include work on regimes, culture, and elections, as well as the analysis of public policy and comparative studies. Each issue is normally made up of a thematic dossier (« Thema ») as well as stand-alone articles (« Arena ») and book reviews (« Lectures »). Some issues also contain accounts of recent South European elections.
Pôle Sud is governed by a seven-member editorial board assisted by an international scientific advisory board of approximately twenty members. As a peer-reviewed journal all articles are subject to anonymous review by two outside experts. It is among the journals taken into account by the French Agency for the Evaluation of Research and Higher Education (AERES). It is published both in hard copy and in digital format accessible through Persée and Cairn.
Pôle Sud is indexed by Sociological Abstracts (USA) and, in Germany, by Zeller Dietrich Bibliographische Verlag.
