Overview

Public Organization Review seeks to advance knowledge of public organizations around the world. Its focus is on `public', broadly defined, to include governmental, non-profit, and non-governmental organizations, and their impacts on human life and society, as well as their influence in shaping human civilization. The Review publishes empirical, theoretical, analytical and historical articles of high academic quality that contribute to the advancement of understanding `public' organizations. Of particular interest are (1) studies of public organizations and their administration at all levels of analysis; (2) studies of intra and interorganizational relationships, including interactions with private corporations, non-profit, and non-governmental organizations; (3) studies of state and society, politics and market, social change and public organizations, and globalization and national governance/administration; (4) studies of organizational theory, behavior, change, development, leadership, policy, and management; (5) studies of organization-elite, organizational elite-mass citizens, and public-private sector interface; and (6) studies that further the cause of the common good and contribute to a humane civilization.
