Launched in 2002, Chinese Public Administration Review (CPAR) is the first international journal specifically addressing the issues of Chinese public administration, riding on the rise of China, Asia and increasing global interconnectedness. CPAR is now expanding its focus beyond China, to embrace Asia and the whole Pan-Pacific region and to address comparative public administration worldwide. Published biannually by the Center for Chinese Public Administration Research and the School of Government at Sun Yat-sen University, CPAR is a peer reviewed journal with a very strong international editorial team. In addition to being included in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), CPAR is indexed in Google scholar and Open Archives Initiative (OAI).

Focused on multidisciplinary scholarship, CPAR aims to develop theories and knowledge to tackle increasingly complex public administration and public policy issues in the region. CPAR welcomes research that addresses diverse public administration and public policy topics with significant theoretical and practical implications including, but not limited to:

  • Administrative Reform
  • Administrative Law
  • Public Policy Implementation
  • Public Sector Innovation
  • Public Sector Human Resource Management
  • Public Performance Management
  • Public Budgeting and Finance
  • Nonprofit Management and Civil Society
