New journal: Perspectives on Public Management and Governance
Perspectives on Public Management & Governance (PPMG) is dedicated to theory development and conceptual work challenging and advancing the field of public affairs.
PPMG will seek to develop new theories, frameworks, and conceptual models, as well as summative and critical evaluations of existing theoretical frameworks. It will welcome contributions from a variety of epistemological frameworks that can add a new perspective to public administration and governance, e.g. positivist, normative, interpretive, grounded, and critical theory. In addition to publishing new theoretical work, the journal will publish analytical reviews of literature. While the primary focus of the journal is not to test empirical work, it is hoped the work will consider concepts used in empirical work, stimulate discussion of trends, advancements, and synthesis of empirical work such as meta-analyses, and include theoretical developments that offer empirical illustrations, either quantitative or qualitative.
Leiden University prof. Sandra Groeneveld acts as one of the associate editors. Prof. Zeger van der Wal sits on the editorial board.
The first issue of PPMG is scheduled to be printed for the first quarter of 2018. Submissions are currently being accepted. Visit the journal’s website for more information.
