Public Policy and Administration Review is an international peer-reviewed journal published by American Research Institute for Policy Development. The journal aims at exploring the latest developments in public administration and management - translating theory for practice and practice into theory. The journal is truly global in scope, covering developed, emerging and transitional states and all areas of public activity. It welcomes both individual country-based and especially comparative work. The target audience is not just scholars, but also policy-makers and practitioners, including aspiring public sector leaders engaged in education and research in the growing global community.

Public Policy and Administration Review strives to draw on the latest research - whether carried out by scholars or practitioners or indeed collaborations. The journal includes not only cutting edge research, but also: feature interviews or opinion pieces from leading scholars and policy-makers; a resources section for scholars and practitioners; occasional symposia and debates; and themed issues of topics of special interest. Proposals in all these areas are always welcome. All research articles in this journal have undergone initial editorial screen and rigorous peer review.
