Some exciting news regarding our Election Reports series: we have now officially entered into a partnership with the journal Electoral Studies. The agreement covers two areas. First, authors who write “Notes on Recent Elections” for the journal will also be encouraged to write Election Reports for The Monkey Cage, which should bring us additional content here. Second, Electoral Studies will provide links back to these reports from their website, which should bring more readers for anyone who writes Election Reports for The Monkey Cage.
To be clear, none of this changes the fact that we will still post election reports through the normal mechanism, namely simply contacting me and telling me you would like to write a report. We can have more than one report per election, and by no means are the new authors coming our way via Electoral Studies likely to cover all of the election in which we are interested. Thus I continue to need volunteers to write these reports.
As I laid out in the first post announcing these reports, the idea here is to get real-time analysis (within the first day or two of an election) from a political scientist who is following that election closely because of his or her research. But we do need volunteers to do this, and currently I do not have anyone lined up for elections in the next few months. So here’s a list of upcoming elections. Please email me at joshua dot tucker at nyu dot edu if you are interested in writing guest posts about any of these elections. We are also happy to have pre-election reports as well.
