Public Management Review
Public Management Review seeks to:
-explore the developing field of public management
-embrace research both about the strategic and operational management of public services and about social/public policy development and implementation
-encourage in particular work which either presents new empirical knowledge about public management and/or developed theory
-encourage questioning both of the legitimacy and hegemony of the ’new public management’ paradigm and its alternatives, and of the developing pluralism in public management which encompasses the governance of inter-sectoral relationships between government, non-profit and for-profit organisations in the provision of public services.
The remit of Public Management Review is to promote the dissemination and discussion of such research about public management. Its specific target audience is the academic and research community.
Public Management Review is an international journal, seeking to draw together and learn lessons from the development of public management across the world rather than being parochially focused upon one area and encourages cross-national and comparative research papers.
The journal promotes inter-disciplinary work. Much of the most important work about public management is coming at the cusp of traditional disciplines. Public Management Review promotes such cross-boundary learning and conceptualisation.
