The Journal of Policy Analysis and Management (JPAM) invites papers for a special symposium on “Policy Informatics.” The focus of policy informatics is on advancing
research and practice that can enhance our understanding of complex policy and managerial problems by leveraging advances in information and communication
technologies. We are seeking papers with a systems perspective and a focus on the role of information and communications technology and its influence on governance and public
institutions. We are interested in exploring policies and management practices that enhance the sustainability and resilience of programs, processes, laws and managerial
innovations in government, quasi-government and nonprofit organizations.
Papers should contain well-articulated extensions or redefinition of the boundaries of research. Demonstrations of the usefulness of these approaches must be focused on issues and
concerns that have broad ramifications for policy and decision makers at the state, local or federal levels of government. Submissions for this special issue should be made through the regular online submission process for the journal at editorialexpress.com/jpam/. Please indicate with your submission that you would like your paper to be considered for this special issue. Initial
submissions for this symposium will be accepted until June 15, 2013. Dr. Anand Desai and Dr. Yushim Kim will serve as special guest co-editors for this symposium along with
JPAM editor-in-chief, Dr. Maureen Pirog.
