Why subscribe and read
ADMINISTORY. Journal for the History of Public Administration is published once a year and covers a wide range of perspectives, from biographical to discourse analysis. Spanning multiple eras and with an international orientation that extends beyond Europe, it raises awareness of continuities and fractures, and enables exchange between national knowledge cultures and epistemic communities. In order to retain focus while encouraging that diversity, each individual volume of the yearbook is devoted to a specific topic that creates space for dialogue.
In addition to articles on that topic, there is an open area containing articles on current issues relating to the history of states and administrations, in particular methodological innovations, and research reports.
