Governance: An international journal of policy, administration and institutions

Thirty years of Governance

Reagan and Gorbachev in Red Square, March 1988

This month marks the publication of volume 30 of Governance.  In a commentary in the current issue, Colin Campbell and Guy Peters reflect on the launch of the journal in 1988. “The major journals in policy and administration were much less internationalized than they are now,” Campbell and Peters write.  There was “a need for a journal that would address public policy and administration in a comparative manner.”   Read the commentary.

According to the most recent data provided by Journal Citation Reports, Governance is ranked #2 by impact factor in Public Administration, and #5 in Political Science.  It is the only journal in the world that is ranked in the top five in both fields.  This newsletter is delivered to over five thousand academics and professionals around the world.
