Philippine Journal of Public Policy: Interdisciplinary Development Perspectives
Aims and Scope
The Philippine Journal of Public Policy: Interdisciplinary Development Perspectives (PJPP) (ISSN 2672-3352 (print) / 2704-2847 (online) (DOI: doi.org/10.54096/MJEF7942) is the annual peer-reviewed journal of the University of the Philippines Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP CIDS). It is published released in print and online.
PJPP promotes the broadening of discourse on public policy to accommodate more dynamic contemporary policy realities in the Philippines as well as in developing and/or industrialized countries in Southeast Asia and East Asia.
PJPP publishes policy research covering the following major themes: education, paradigms of development, social and political change, strategic studies, ethnicity and religion, health, and science and technology. The Journal also accommodates scholarly work on issues such as peace and conflict transformation, migration, constitutional change, and disaster risk reduction and management.
PJPP takes off from the Public Policy Journal (PPJ), which was launched in 1997 by then UP President Emil Javier to serve as one of the university’s contributions to public policy discourse from a multidisciplinary perspective.
The Journal has published key research projects conducted by university faculty members across the UP System and has evolved to be a platform for examining contemporary social, cultural, economic, and political issues in the Philippines, Southeast Asia, and East Asia.
To maintain academic rigor, scholars affiliated with globally renowned institutions from various disciplines serve as its peer reviewers, as needed.
What kinds of manuscripts does PJPP accept?
Maintaining its preference for interdisciplinary research, PJPP welcomes theoretical articles containing relevant literature, well-designed and analyzed empirical studies, and policy studies that are widely applicable.
Full-length articles tackle relevant topics and issues related to public policy. Each article provides a multidisciplinary examination of contemporary social, cultural, economic and political issues in the Philippines and elsewhere.
Book reviews are brief commentaries on recently published books relevant to public policy. This collection of experts’ viewpoints seeks to reexamine these works in a fresh and analytical perspective.
This section features works that provide a critical view on relevant issues and developments related to public policy. These essays and commentaries offer concise and grounded viewpoints on theoretical and practical aspects of policy conceptualization, formation, implementation, and evaluation. The PJPP Policy Insights seek to generate conversations among scholars, policymakers, and the general public, and contribute to broader policy discourse.
Teresa S. Encarnacion Tadem, Ph.D., Professor at the UP Department of Political Science and Executive Director of UP CIDS, currently serves as the journal’s Editor-in-Chief.
