The Institute of Public Administration Australia is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified public administration academics to take on the editorship of the Australian Journal of Public Administration (AJPA) from 1 January 2022.

The AJPA is the journal of record on public administration, public management, and public policy in Australia and has been in continuous publication since 1937.

IPAA’s National President Dr Gordon de Brouwer PSM said,

‘The AJPA is important, not only in continuing to build public administration scholarship across our universities and educational institutions, but also in providing an ever expanding body of evidence to support Australia’s public sectors address the challenges we face as a society, both now and into the future’.

‘I encourage public administration academics from across Australia to speak with their colleagues and consider making an expression of interest to lead a new editorial team that will oversee the next stage in the AJPA’s development.’

Interested parties can request an expression of interest package from Frank Exon, IPAA’s National Director, which contains the information required to lodge a formal expression of interest.

Expressions of interest close on Friday 9 July 2021.

A formal offer is expected to be made to the successful party in mid-August.

Enquires about the expression of interest and selection process can be directed to Frank Exon, IPAA’s National Director.

Enquiries about the journal and other matters relating to the editing and production process can be directed to the current Editor-in-Chief, Professor Catherine Althaus.
