The Central European Journal of Public Policy (CEJPP) is an open-access, multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal with primary focus upon analytical, theoretical and methodological articles in the field of public policy.
The journal article processing charge for accepted articles (APCs) is 400 EUR. This fee covers a part of open access publishing costs.
The aim of the CEJPP is to provide academic scholars and professionals in different policy fields with the latest theoretical and methodological advancements in public policy supported by sound empirical research. The CEJPP addresses all topics of public policy including social services and healthcare, environmental protection, education, labour market, immigration, security, public financing and budgeting, administrative reform, performance measurements, governance and others. It attempts to find a balance between description, explanation and evaluation of public policies and encourages a wide range of social science approaches, both qualitative and quantitative. Although the journal focuses primarily upon Central Europe, relevant contributions from other geographical areas are also welcomed in order to enhance public policy research in Central Europe.

The CEJPP accepts original manuscripts with sound theoretical, methodological and empirical grounding.

The CEJPP publishes papers within the broad field of public policy including recent developments in research, scholarship and practice within public policy, public administration, government, public management, administrative law and public policy theory. For any specific submission the authors are welcome to email an abstract to the Editor-in-Chief, prior to formal submission, if they wish for guidance on the appropriateness of their proposed article, as the CEJPP welcomes innovative ideas and approaches.
