Teaching Public Administration – Archives

Annual Progress report 2013

An extract:

‘Since a few years, the newly established journal “Teaching Public Administration” (TPA; published by Sage) is informally related to the study group. John Diamond, the editor of TPA, regularly joins sessions of PSG IX and invites participants to submit their papers to the journal. After the EGPA-conference 2013, the chairs proposed altogether 6 papers presented at the PSG’s meetings to TPA for publication and some of the respective authors submitted revised versions of their papers to TPA for reviewing. For the next PSG-meeting at EGPA-conference 2014, the editors of TPA together with the study group chairs are planning to establish a “Best Paper Award” supported by Sage’.
