JPAM Call for Papers Call for Papers Special Issue: Policy Informatics Submission Deadline: June 15, 2013 The Journal of Policy Analysis and Management (JPAM) invites papers for a special symposium on “Policy Informatics.” The focus of policy informatics is on advancing research and practice that can enhance our understanding of complex policy and managerial problems by leveraging advances in information and communication technologies. We are seeking papers with a systems perspective and a focus on the role of information and communications technology and its influence on governance and public institutions. We are interested in exploring policies and management practices that enhance the sustainability and resilience of programs, processes, laws and managerial innovations in government, quasi-government and nonprofit organizations. Papers should contain well-articulated extensions or redefinition of the boundaries of research. Demonstrations of the usefulness of these approaches must be focused on issues and concerns that have broad ramifications for policy and decision makers at the state, local or federal levels of government. Submissions for this special issue should be made through the regular online submission process for the journal at Please indicate with your submission that you would like your paper to be considered for this special issue. Initial submissions for this symposium will be accepted until June 15, 2013. Dr. Anand Desai and Dr. Yushim Kim will serve as special guest co-editors for this symposium along with JPAM editor-in-chief, Dr. Maureen Pirog. 1 Special issue of JPAM on policy informatics Guest co-editors Anand Desai John Glenn School of Public Affairs at Ohio State & Yushim Kim School of Public Affairs at Arizona State Communications regarding this proposal should be directed to Anand Desai at [email protected] or 614.292.0826.
