Overview

This journal aims at expanding knowledge about developments in the public administration and public sector in countries and regions not extensively covered in the major journals in public administration. We would like to have papers that describe, try to explain or evaluate recent developments in governance, public administration or public policies in one or a couple of such countries. Be it about reforms, new managerial processes, policy developments, new developments in human resource management and so on. The only restriction is that the paper be relevant for the practice of public administration research and training, for the discipline of public administration and/or for the practice of public administration.

The analyses should be focused, valid and reliable, sound and consistent, precise, systemic, and verifiable, but at the same time the outcomes should trigger the reader to think differently than before, to change perspective, because the paper contains a novel viewpoint, an original approach, research question and/or conclusion, and the findings are significant. We also encourage papers written from the perspective of trainees and students and written in such a way that it is supportive for students and trainees to discuss the merits of the developments and trends described in the paper.

Aims & Scope

One aim of the journal is to provide a publication platform for high quality papers presented at a conference of the International Institute of Administrative Sciences (IIAS) and International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA) and regional groups of IIAS.

What kind of papers are not relevant for the journal

  • Just a description of what one can read also on government websites will not suffice.
  • We also don’t need extensive theorical papers. There are plenty of other journals publishing such papers.
  • Neither do we appreciate politically oriented papers. Regarding political perspectives please be as neutral as possible. This is a journal about administration.
