Scope European Policy Analysis (EPA) is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal on policy research with the aim of presenting the European perspective(s) on policy analysis. It is published twice a year, in May and November, under the aegis of the Policy Studies Organization (PSO) and in cooperation with Wiley. EPA invites previously unpublished papers and quality articles that fall within its scope. It is especially interested in articles that present the European state-of-the-art for major theoretical or practical concepts of policy analysis such as “Institutions”, “Policy Learning”, “Evaluation”, “Policy Advice”, “Advocacy Coalition Framework in the European Context”, “Multiple Streams Approach in the European Context”, “Punctuated Equilibrium Theory in the European Context”, “Programmatic Actors”, “Actor-centered Institutionalism”, “Multi-Level Policy-Making in the European Context” and other similar contributions. We also invite overviews on regional perspectives on public policy in Europe ranging from country reports (e.g. “Policy Analysis in France”, “Policy Analysis in Russia”, “Policy Analysis in Slovenia”) to regional ones (e.g., Policy Analysis in the Baltic Countries”) and similar contributions.

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'.

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.
