Transforming Government: People, Process and Policy (TGPPP) promotes conceptually- and methodologically-sound debate on current and emerging issues in the fields of politics, economics, technology and business to reach and inform decision-makers at all levels of the decision-making process. TGPPP aims to build bridges between the worlds of academia and policymaking to promote evidence-based research. TGPPP welcomes submissions from established and early career researchers, practitioners and policy makers to contribute, manage and share knowledge and experience, and to learn from each other’s research through front-line thinking about government and the complex multi-scalar environment in which it evolves. TGPPP encourages multi- and interdisciplinary approaches to issues, processes and developments that directly and indirectly influence government’s nature and power of government and the way in which it operates. Contributions exploring community, city, domestic, regional, international and global perspectives to these issues are welcome. Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
