How to publish in this journal


NISPAcee launched the NISPAcee Journal of Public Administration and Policy in 2008. The Journal is predominantly devoted to public administration, public policy and public governance issues in Central and Eastern Europe, but high-level submissions from any other part of the world are also considered, especially if they focus on the issues relevant to the NISPAcee region. The goal is to publish top quality papers based on empirical research (of qualitative, quantitative or mixed character), theoretical articles and literature reviews, developing general public administration, public policy and public governance theory, or their specific dimensions. Book reviews are also welcome. Join the conversation about this journal
