The Journal of Comparative Public Policy: Research and Practice invites manuscripts that address issues of public policy and public administration and that are explicitly comparative. Submitted manuscripts should analyze competing explanatory frameworks and research methods, test models across spatial structures/cultures/organizations/contexts, and compare different instruments for achieving similar ends. Moreover, where appropriate, manuscripts should attempt to depict circumstances in which the domains being compared have certain manipulable policy, program, or institutional variables in common. The journal will give priority to comparative studies that (1) contribute to theory development, (2) present theory-based empirical research, (3) offer comparative evaluations of research methods, (4) derive the practice implications of theory-based research, and (5) use conceptual heuristics to interpret practice.
