Towards the end of last year I was absolutely delighted to be part of an editorial collective that has taken control of the Australian Journal of Public Administration. This is a wonderful journal with an amazing history and back catalogue which is produced for both academic and practice audiences.
Myself, Janine O’Flynn, Anne Tiernan, Adrian Kay and Maria Katsonis have been beavering away for a few months to get our first edition in place and make all the sorts of changes that new editorial teams typically do. Our first issue is out now and contains a number of great articles to kick off the tenure of the new editorial team.
In this issue we have focused on a series of dialogues between academics and practitioners on substantial topics such as public sector reform, policy and success, innovation and federalism. A number of these papers have been made available for free for a limited time, so even if you don’t usually have access to this journal you can check it out. We are always keen to hear feedback on what we might do more of or do differently so if you have any thoughts or ideas about how we take this journal forward then drop us a line.
