"Let’s say that political science decided to create a Journal of Super-Important Security Debates in which relevance held a greater priority over technique and papers that were of 'great interest and importance to a broad range of readers' were prioritized for publication.

What would such a journal look like? I’d wager that it would look an awful lot like International Security (IS), the leading subfield journal for security studies..."
Are political science journals suppressing the asking of big, relevant policy questions?

We are pleased to present SPOTLIGHT ON SCIENCE (SOS), a Q&A series devoted to our science journals. Each month, we will interview the authors of our new, upcoming, and classic science articles and share the Q&A on the MIT Press blog. We will also ungate each month’s featured science article so that it’s free for all to read for the month.

For our debut SPOTLIGHT ON SCIENCE post, we talk to author Deena Skolnick Weisberg about "The Seductive Allure of Neuroscience Explanations," which appeared in the JOURNAL OF COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE back in 2008 and remains one of our most actively discussed and cited papers today. The article will be free to read through July 31st.
