Publications, Journals & Reports


SPAA faculty serve as editors and on key editorial boards on top journals:

  • 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.
  • American Review of Public Administration (ARPA) is one of the elite scholarly peer-reviewed journals in public administration and public affairs. ARPA focuses on public administration broadly defined, encompassing organization and management studies, leadership, performance measurement and management systems, budgeting and financial management, network governance, and nonprofit management, among other topics.
  • Journal of Public Management and Social Policy (JPMSP) publishes theoretical, applied, and/or discussion papers on public administration, political science, and public policy issues associated with the process of economic, educational, environmental, political and social well-being of diverse populations. The journal aims to provide a forum for scholarly research addressing diverse issues. Manuscripts are welcome in four areas of research: politics, economics, equity, and the environment.
