Summary/Abstract: The paper presents a comprehensive analysis of studies and texts published in relevant Czech political science journals, while highlighting the institutional and personal background of the various published material. In this way, the authors strive to identify sets of variables that assist in constituting (self-)images of the Czech political science – namely, the relevance of various institutions in terms of the publication efforts of their members, topical preferences of top Czech political scientists providing a major part of the general publication output, and institutional and topical biases of relevant Czech political science journals. Given the results of this analysis, the authors are able to draw several tentative conclusions about the state of Czech political science in terms of the major characteristics and publication preferences of the Czech political science community, putting an emphasis on rational publication strategies of the researchers, stabilization of topical coverage of major political science institutions and the roles of top researchers in setting the agenda.
