Public Policy Studies (Studia z Polityki Publicznej)
Studia z Polityki Publicznej/Public Policy Studies is a journal published since 2014. The editors publish academic texts focused on the issues of broadly understood public policy in its various dimensions. The main field of interest are articles on both the concept or theory of public policy and the issues of sectoral policies. The texts can also be focused on models and cycles in a selected policy (from problem diagnosis to solution evaluation); attitudes, values, motives of policy actors (e.g., the role of trust among stakeholders, ability to cooperate); methods for evaluating results in policies; indicators illustrating the results of public activities; mechanisms of resource allocation in public activity (market and its failures, state failure). The editors are also interested in sources influencing the shaping of public policies (e.g., intellectual, sociological and cultural sources, historical sources), sources of knowledge in selected policies (policy knowledge), knowledge brokers (expert networks), decision-making processes and policy styles (activities unilateral vs. partnerships, the anticipation of problems vs. reactivity), institutional factors that co-shape public policy (e.g., parties, parliamentary systems, public administration).
