The Journal of Administrative Science (JAS) is an international, interdisciplinary journal aims to prompt discussion, sharing and debate on topical issues of particular interest or concern in the developed and developing world. It deliberates the theoretical and empirical articles that incorporate with the administrative science issues from interrelated disciplinary standpoints. The journal welcomes contributions from scholars from the humanities and social sciences with a research interest in the developed and developing world. The journal is published by the Faculty of Administrative Science & Policy Studies (FASPS), Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Shah Alam. This dynamic field is focused at the center of such contemporary public policy debates as the future of federal public policy, the privatisation of public services, the changing role of public sector management in the achievement of organisational goals and objectives.
JAS is a double-blind peer-reviewed; both reviewers and authors’ identities remain anonymous journal. It will produce regular issues twice a year as an open-access e-journal. It is a non-profit journal which aims to provide a venue for academics, educators and researchers to share the findings of their research. Manuscripts may outline experience, both national and international, in dealing with a particular issue. Or they may be more empirical in nature, prompting the development of new ideas on public management issues. The manuscripts are not intended to set out an official position on the topic under scrutiny. Rather, the intention is to identify current thinking and best practice. The journal intends to provide a service to people working in public organisations by enhancing the knowledge base on public management issues. Research into the problems, solutions and successes of public management processes, and the way organisations can best adapt in a changing environment have much to contribute to good management and are a vital element in the public service renewal process.
A manuscript submitted to the Editorial Board for consideration must be an original unpublished work, not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
