The Journal of Political Science, a bi-annual research journal has been published by the Post-Graduate Department of Political Science, DAV College, Jalandhar since 2005. Earlier it was known as Journal of Political Studies, established in 1968. As the years passed, the Journal of Political Studies, as it was titled then, grew in circulations as well as in stature.

International Political Science Association recognised this journal, when it started publishing the abstracts of the articles being published in it and also started making micro-films of these articles. However, procedural technicalities have forced to change the name from Journal of Political Studies to Journal of Political Science in 2005.
