Public Knowledge Journal

Mission Statement

 

Public Knowledge Journal is a graduate student peer-reviewed journal dedicated to engendering a space for conversations across disciplines regarding some of the 21st century’s most challenging questions. Working from the premise that contemporary global challenges require multifaceted, interdisciplinary solutions, Public Knowledge Journal works to bridge the gap between praxis and theory.  With this in mind, Public Knowledge Journal aims to provide opportunities for graduate students to become acquainted with academic publication processes.

Published biannually, issues feature scholarly refereed articles, book reviews, essays, interviews and other work, including multimedia and artwork from the social sciences and humanities that develop new knowledge and stimulate advancements in public policy, political science, public administration, governance, globalization, urban affairs and international development.  Interdisciplinary work is strongly encouraged. In addition to manuscripts relating to new developments, we also welcome submissions that re-examine or challenge the deeper questions and assumptions underpinning current theoretical and practical approaches.

Public Knowledge Journal occasionally invites guest editors to organize special issues devoted to certain themes, including interdisciplinary topics that require insight from disciplines outside of the social sciences and humanities. The journal aims to engage a conversation between diverse communities, and seeks to provide a platform for scholarly dialogue. Moreover, it is interested in original and rigorous scholarly research that is accessible a broad audience.
