Policy Quarterly is the journal of the Institute for Governance and Policy Studies. Published four times each year, it is targeted at readers in the public sector, including politicians and their staff, public servants and a wide variety of professions, together with others interested in public issues. Its length and style are intended to make the journal accessible to busy readers.
The Co-Editors welcome contributions of up to 4,000 words, written on any topic relating to public policy and management. Articles submitted will be reviewed by members of the journal's Editorial Board and/or by selected reviewers, depending on the topic. Although issues will not usually have single themes, special issues may be published from time to time on specific or general themes, perhaps to mark a significant event. In such cases, and on other occasions, contributions may be invited from particular people.
It is available in hard copy (to subscribe contact firstname.lastname@example.org) and is downloadable free online.
