Elections and Representation welcomes submissions on a wide range of topics that relate to the field of electoral studies:
Within the section, we publish rigorously peer-reviewed new approaches to the study of elections and political representation that employ experimental and observational methods. Similarly, substantive and methodological studies are equally welcome as are those that employ comparative methods within or across countries. Elections and Representation also invites submissions that engage in cross-disciplinary debates as well as those that address understudied topics within the field.

Articles published in the section Elections and Representation will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Political Science.
