Public Administration is a major refereed journal founded in 1922 which publishes articles on public administration public policy and public management. Originally the journal of the British Royal Institute of Public Administration it became an independent international journal in 1992. It has a global circulation. For 1999 the journal has been relaunched with significantly increased coverage of European public administration in a new 'European Forum'. AIMS The journal has three objectives: To stimulate scholarly and practitioner dialogue in public administration public management and policy analysis. To encourage critical comparative analysis especially of European Commonwealth and American public administration. To publish articles which are theoretically rigorous and of a broad current interest Public Administration has an eminent editorial board drawn from Austria Belgium the Netherlands France Germany Norway Spain Sweden the UK and the USA. NEW 'EUROPEAN FORUM' This new section recognises the significant expansion and international orientation of public administration in Western Europe and seeks to foster communication and co-operation among this community of scholars. Although there are several national journals few carry material on comparative public administration or aspire to an international audience. This gap in journal coverage coupled with the quantity and quality of work available created the opportunity for a significant expansion of Public Administration . In 1999 the journal increased to 1000 pages and European articles now account for up to 50 per cent of its content. EXPANDED REVIEW SECTION A substantially expanded 'Reviews' section provides traditional reviews covering European as well as UK and US publications. It carries 'state of the art' reviews in public administration in selected countries. This section also - an important innovation - covers the expanding field of electronic media the worldwide web and CD-ROM publishing. MAIN ARTICLES The journal continues to publish articles on public administration and public policy in Britain and the rest of the world especially the Commonwealth and USA which meet our stated aims. These account for up to 50 per cent of the journal's contents. PUBLIC MANAGEMENT AND NOTES These sections provide an outlet for shorter articles which address issues of interest to practitioners. Please see the Submissions section for further details of editorial policy and how to submit articles.
