Published/Hosted by Pion Ltd..
Environment and Planning C: Government and Policy is a fully refereed journal committed to interdisciplinary research on issues of Government and Policy with an international perspective. The journal is interested in theoretical papers and empirical assessment. It also considers case studies provided that they have a broader international relevance. It is committed to a broad range of policy questions, not just those related to government and public policy. It has had many path-breaking papers on nonstate agents, private-public collaboration, and NGOs (nongovernmental organisations). All areas of economic, social and environmental institutions, and policy are included, as reflected in the broad Editorial Board. Disciplines from which papers are derived are broad and include political science, planning, geography, economics, law, sociology, and public administration. There is a strong presence of papers from North America, Britain, and Europe, but papers from all countries are encouraged. The editors want to keep the journal at the forefront of debate about innovations in public policy backed up by theoretically based or empirical assessment. Occasionally the journal will devote all or part of an issue to a specific theme. Recent themes have covered "Restructuring in central Europe" and "Geography and public administration". The editors are pleased to respond to proposals for papers or themes, subject to the normal standards of independent refereeing.
