Research For Class

Share Your Research on Black Lives Matter, Rep, and The Politics of Protest


The goal of APSA's RAISE the Vote campaign is to amplify and increase college student political participation in its many forms by highlighting existing research that faculty can use in their courses to encourage students to vote and/or otherwise engage in their communities.

The recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, and the ensuing protests against systemic racism and police brutality, have made it even more important to highlight and share political science research focused on race, ethnicity, and politics, the politics of systemic racism, Black Lives Matter, police violence, and protest politics.

If you conduct research related to one of these areas, we would like to feature your work in the RAISE the Vote campaign in the form of a 500-1000 word blog post.

All RAISE the Vote blog posts are published on the RAISE the Vote website and (APSA's blog website). They are also shared through APSA's social media channels.

What Does Political Science Research Say About…..


These accessible pieces, featured on, the Journal of Political Science Educationand PS: Political Science, outline research broadly related to voting and civic engagement that political science faculty can use in the classroom. New links will be added as new blog posts are published throughout the year. We are grateful to Cambridge University Press and Taylor & Francis for providing free access to the JPSE and PS articles featured in the campaign through the end of 2019.

Share Your Research


Do you want feedback on your data set related to voting behavior? Do you want to share your working paper featuring SoTL research on civic engagement with your peers?

APSA Preprints is a new platform dedicated to early research outputs in political science. Authors can upload unpublished content—including working papers, presentations, and datasets—to stake an early claim to their research, obtain a DOI, and solicit feedback from peers.

APSA Preprints accepts all types of political science research, broadly defined. Each preprint is uploaded to one of thirteen sub-fields, including American Government, Political Science Education, and Public Policy. The best part? APSA Preprints is 100% free to browse and upload—you simply need to create a free APSA account. Visit to learn more. For questions, please contact
