The American Review of Public Administration is one of the elite scholarly journals in public administration and public affairs. ARPA’s identity lies at the core of the field of public administration, and its quality and reputation have grown in tandem as the journal marked its fortieth year in 2010. ARPA focuses substantively on public administration broadly defined, publishing scholarship on all aspects of the field, including such traditional areas as organization and management studies, program and performance evaluation, and budgeting and financial management, as well as such emerging areas as network governance, public involvement and public service motivation.
Although rooted in U.S. public administration, ARPA also increasingly carries research from international and comparative settings authored by international scholars. The journal has no disciplinary or methodological bias, other than an insistence on analytical excellence and substantive relevance. Toward that end, all manuscripts are subjected to a blind peer-review process prior to acceptance and publication, most within two months’ time. Even the occasional invited essays from leading scholars are subject to independent reviews by the co-editors. The journal also gives a high priority to timeliness, with decisions on most manuscript submissions completed in less than two months’ time. Articles can also be published ahead of print in the OnlineFirst queue on the ARPA website and are fully citable before being assigned to an issue.
