How to publish in this journal


The Journal of Public Affairs Education (JPAE) is dedicated to advancing teaching and learning in public affairs, which includes the fields of public policy analysis, public administration, and public management. Hosted by the Department of Public Administration at NC State University and the Department of Political Science at Augusta University, the quarterly journal features peer-reviewed scholarly articles on pedagogical, curricular, and accreditation issues pertaining to public affairs education, commentaries, symposia, and book reviews. JPAE is the official journal of the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA). The journal is dedicated to advancing the scholarship of public administration education. Public affairs is a field of practice, and as practitioners and scholars, we need to engage continually in discussions that seek to strengthen instruction. JPAE fulfills a vital role in our field by serving as the top research journal for this dialogue on pedagogy. Thus, the mission of the journal is to be a forum for scholarly discussions on teaching the public affairs programs. The journal welcomes manuscripts that report research on pedagogy in public affairs programs; the administration of public affairs programs; issues facing instructors in the classroom; trends in the field of public administration; case studies that illustrate public administration principles in practice; and other vital topics.

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.
