Mission Statement

Mission
The Journal of Science Policy and Governance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization.
The Journal of Science Policy and Governance:

  1. Provides a forum for students and young scholars to publish policy relevant scholarship; and
  2. Fosters a public discussion on the most pressing issues facing science and technology policy today.

Description

The Journal of Science Policy & Governance (JSPG) is a new non-profit academic journal for students and young scholars. Our articles cover a wide variety of science policy topics including climate change, energy, the environment, and health. We publish op-eds, policy memos, policy analyses, as well as articles that relate to the theme of science policy and governance.


JSPG publishes two editions per year, consisting of 6-9 pieces. We now offer a "Hot Topics" option, whereby authors may submit pieces for accelerated review and publication on urgent policy issues. Our first Hot Topics issue addressed the damage of the U.S. government shutdown and sequestration on the scientific enterprise.


We believe students and young scholars can play an important role in emerging science policy issues, but may find it difficult to publish in traditional academic journals. Furthermore, JSPG has a unique peer review system - our editorial board works directly with student authors to provide content-specific expertise and editorial advice.
