Administration & Society advances your understanding of public and human service organizations, their administrative processes and their effects on society.
Today's Topics and Problems
For over thirty-five years, Administration & Society has served as a leading forum for the exchange of ideas and information on current topics, research questions, and philosophical dilemmas of interest to academics in public administration and related disciplines. And, now that Administration & Society is bimonthly, you can get even more of the up-to-date scholarship you need to stay ahead of your field.
Empirical research reports and theoretical articles provide thoughtful and significant analyses of administrative issues at the federal, state and local levels. Written by authors from a variety of fields, articles address such concerns as:
- forces - political, social, economic, psychological - that shape administrative goals and performance processes by which policies are formulated, implemented and changed
- relationships between groups and organizations
- theory and practice of bureaucratic politics
- evaluation of the effects of policies on society
International and Interdisciplinary
Each issue of Administration & Society not only brings you the latest thinking in public administration as it occurs, but you will be the first to be aware of new research as it develops.
Administration & Society seeks to further the understanding of public and human service organizations, their administrative processes, and their effect on society. The journal publishes empirically oriented research reports and theoretically specific articles that synthesize or contribute to the advancement of understanding and explanation in these fields. Of particular interest are (1) studies that analyze the effects of the introduction of administrative strategies, programs, change interventions, and training; and (2) studies of intergroup, interorganizational, and organization-environment relationships and policy processes.
