PPMR – Public Performance & Management Review

Public Performance & Management Review (PPMR) is a leading peer-reviewed academic journal that addresses a broad array of influential factors on the performance of public and nonprofit organizations. Its objectives are to facilitate the development of innovative techniques and to encourage a wider application of those already established; stimulate research and critical thinking about the relationship between public and private management theories; present integrated analyses of theories, concepts, strategies, and techniques dealing with performance, measurement, and related questions of organizational efficacy; and provide a forum for practitioner-academic exchange. Continuing themes include managing for productivity, measuring and evaluating performance, improving budget strategies, managing human resources, building partnerships, and applying new technologies.

Published since 1975, PPMR is a highly respected journal: journal rankings in 1994, 2007, and 2010 rank PPMR among the top journals in the field (Bernick & Krueger, 2010).* The journal is extensively indexed or abstracted (including the Social Sciences Citation Index, Journal Citation Reports/Social Sciences Edition, Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences) and has been recently added to the online archives of JSTOR.

PPMR is co-sponsored by the Section on Public Performance and Management (SPPM) of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) and Rutgers University-Newark School of Public Affairs and Administration. PPMR is published by Routledge (Taylor & Francis Group).
