Each year, the Yearbook provides retrospective review articles in a wide range of policy subfields. These articles are peer-reviewed and summarize the most recent developments in policy scholarship, providing an accessible reference to who is studying what, where, and how in the field of public policy.
The Yearbook contains a detailed international listing of policy scholars with contact information, fields of specialization, research references, and an individual scholar’s statements of current and future research interests. The intent is to provide a reasonably comprehensive and accessible reference to the most recent scholarship on all aspects of public policy, as well as indications of future research directions.
For public policy scholars, inclusion in the Yearbook is a great way to gain visibility and facilitate networking within the policy research community. Listing in the Yearbook is free of charge to all scholars (including graduate students) who do research in public policy.
This marks the release of the fifth edition of the Public Policy Yearbook, which continues to serve as a useful tool for examining recent changes in public policy scholarship over the past several years. First, the Yearbook allows for a systematic way to identify the broader public policy community. The multidisciplinary nature of public policy research can make it challenging to identify the experts studying various policy problems, and the Yearbook provides a convenient and helpful instrument to do so.
