Chinese Public Administration Review (CPAR) has been the elite international academic platform for high-quality theoretical and empirical work addressing important public administration and policy issues for 20 years. Although initially focused on the Chinese and Asian contexts, CPAR increasingly publishes research from international and comparative settings by scholars worldwide. Published quarterly by the Center for Chinese Public Administration Research and the School of Government at Sun Yat-sen University, CPAR is committed to developing diverse and rigorous research on all aspects of the field. The journal has no disciplinary or methodological bias other than an insistence on academic excellence. All manuscripts are subjected to a double-blind peer-review process before acceptance and publication, most within one and half months. CPAR is currently covered by the Web of Science Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), Scopus, and the Open Archives Initiative (OAI).

Backfile’s note: The CPAR issues from 2002 to 2017 were published by the School of Public Affairs and Administration, Rutgers University at Newark, and the issues from 2018 to 2020 were published by the Institute for Public Service, Suffolk University.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
