The International Journal of Public Sector Management focuses on the common issues which public sector managers, administrators and policy-makers face in a world of over-improving efficiency and effectiveness in situations of scarce resources and rising public expectations. Theory, concepts, methods and practical experience are all drawn upon. A double-blind review process ensures the journal's validity and relevance.
As public demands for higher standards of service and commitment to improvement are balanced against shrinking budgets and staff levels, the public sector manager needs all the information and ideas available, as well as experience, to motivate a demoralized workforce, satisfy government officials and win over an increasingly hostile public.
The journal's international content offers a genuinely valuable source for public sector managers in all areas looking for fresh ways of dealing with familiar problems. Distinguished contributors from all over the world present in-depth research and case histories which have tangible practical value and whose methodologies can be applied to solve or mitigate parallel situations.
