Journal Of Public Affairs

(ISSN 1479-1854)


Aims and Scope

The Journal of Public Affairs (JPA) is an international, interdisciplinary journal focused on the continually evolving field of public affairs. JPA welcomes research from a multitude of subject areas, including (but not limited to): Public Administration, Management, Public Policy, Business, Political Science, Finance and Economics. What will make research of interest to JPA is an emphasis on the implications for the relationship between government or government bodies, and businesses and/or citizens.

For example, JPA is interested in research covering: sustainable development, societal issues, political economy, studies on public/private health, environmental economics and tourism, that is relevant to the intersection between the public sector, the private sector and citizens. Our aim is to continue to expand the extensive body of knowledge by welcoming studies that provide multi-disciplinary investigations pivoted around this idea of public affairs and public policy.

Further examples of topics we welcome (but are not limited to) are:

government relations and lobbying;

stakeholder management;

crisis management;

community relations;

interest group power

corporate social responsibility;

political strategy;

local governance;

political marketing;

public accounting and finance, such as: performance management system in public administration, public budgeting and expenditures, accounting standards;

public management and administration, such as: relationships between public institutions and innovation policies, co-creation of public initiatives, citizens engagement activities, digitalization of public services and processes, business ethics of public institutions.

We welcome papers using a variety of theoretical approaches and research methods, with a clear indication of the methodology applied.

JPA is committed to reflecting the growing geographic diversity in public affairs, and is keen to encourage papers that examine public affairs in its broadest sense from all parts of the world.
