The International Review of Public Policy invites prospective authors and guest editors to propose a Special Issue.
The proposal should be geared towards the aims and objectives of the journal, and obviously, deal with public policy research. The journal contributes to the development of theories of the policy process, empirical tests, and applications of theoretical models, the study of the policy process, the analysis of key stages of the decision and implementation process, research on evaluation and appraisal methods and theories, critical policy analysis. We publish both comparative and single-case studies, drawing on a variety of conceptual frameworks. The IRPP does not discriminate against any ontological presupposition.
Methodologically, our journal is open to experiments, statistical/econometric, qualitative, and interpretive methods, as well as to mixed methods. An important objective of the journal is to publish state-of-the-art social science research that makes a broad range of findings available to policy-makers, civil society organizations, pressure groups, and citizens concerned about policy issues. Thus, if you think that the proposal has this added value, you should flag this up in your proposal.
All proposals will be reviewed by the Editorial Board with the assistance of members of the Scientific Committee.
