The Journal of Public Policy is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles that apply social science theories and concepts to significant political, economic and social issues and to the ways in which public policies are made. Methodology and concepts should be instrumental in achieving analytic purposes, and concepts and theories should be grounded in an awareness of government.
