Governance: An international journal of policy, administration and institutions

Submit article

Governance is an international journal devoted to the study of executive politics, public policy, administration, and the organization of the state. Papers that adopt a comparative perspective are of particular interest. The editors welcome articles employing any methodological approach that addresses themes of relevance to these topics. Articles addressing specific events, policies, politicians, or structures must have some general theoretical significance. The editors strongly encourage public servants and politicians as well as academics to submit articles that meet these criteria.

Manuscripts should be submitted online.  To submit a manuscript online, start here.

If you encounter difficulties with online submission, please contact the journal at

Each manuscript will be reviewed anonymously by at least two referees. The co-editors will make the final decision on publication. Submission of an article implies that it has not been published, has not been committed to another publication, and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Books for review or book reviews for consideration for publication should be sent to Clay Wescott, Book Review Editor, at, or Asia Pacific Governance Institute, 2819 Ellicott St NW, Washington, DC 20008.
