The Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Public Administration in the Digital Age (IJPADA) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, coverage, and guidelines for submission to IJPADA.

The mission of the International Journal of Public Administration in the Digital Age (IJPADA) is to examine both the impact of information technology (IT) on public and nonprofit organizations, as well as the implementation of information technology for improving urban or regional governance. Through its mission IJPADA examines the impact of IT on reforming and changing public and nonprofit organizations both internally (transparency, efficiency, etc.) and externally (outcomes and impact on society). This journal also compares the adoption of IT in public and nonprofit organizations in different institutional and organizational environments, such as comparing implementation of IT in developed versus developing countries or the adoption of IT in private versus public sector organizations. IJPADA will examine emerging and innovative technologies and their adoption in public and nonprofit organizations. Therefore, this journal seeks research drawn from a variety of disciplines, including but not limited to information science, public policy, public administration, education studies, political science, business, law, urban studies, information systems, communications, economics, sociology, computer science, and public health. Its multidisciplinary aim is to advance the organizational, administrative, and policy sciences through the implementation of IT as they apply to government and governance.
