Biden School Journal of Public Policy

 

Biden School Journal of Public Policy – JPP (formerly New Visions for Public Affairs) is an annual student-produced peer-review publication of the University of Delaware’s Biden School of Public Policy and Administration (Biden School). Founded in 2008, our organization publishes a scholarly peer-review journal comprised of student academic writing on topics related to public policy and public administration. The Biden School Journal is managed by a student editorial board that is advised by a Faculty Advisory Board.

This student-run journal showcases research and writing related to public policy and administration, but not limited to, scholarly research essays, literature reviews, and special interviews. Preference is given to works that take new approaches in their discussion of current policies and future alternatives.

Every year the Journal also holds a research symposium where authors whose submissions are published in the journal are invited to share their research findings with peers and faculty.
