Watch the Member Forum On Demand: At the Intersection of Data Science and Social Science

Sep 14, 2018 02:20 PM

The proliferation of new digital data sources and the development of new programming languages that can quickly make sense of these data are changing the nature of how public policy makers and the general public understand how government works – and when it doesn’t. This discussion focused on the road ahead for data and social science, how to communicate better when the lanes merge, and what this all means for getting to better-informed policies and programs that improve public well-being.

Are There Hidden Costs Associated with Conducting Layoffs? The Impact of Reduction-in-Force and Layoff Notices on Teacher Effectiveness | JPAM Featured Article

Sep 07, 2018 05:02 PM

The Great Recession of 2008 led to widespread layoffs in both the public and private sectors. While there is a literature of empirical work that shows the direct costs of such employment reductions, there is little work that examines the less obvious consequences associated with layoffs and the process through which layoffs occur. The authors show that the negative impacts of the layoff process on teacher productivity are driven by the process’ effects on teachers’ job commitment.

Build Community and Confidence for Early-Career Scholars through the 40 for 40 Fellowship

Aug 13, 2018 06:23 PM

The 40 for 40 Fellowship is an opportunity for young researchers, like me, to have a platform to use their voice and to gain the support of a community. You are building confidence not only in the individual but are helping to ensure that the field remains diverse. Think about your perspectives on policy and what made you passionate about it. Representation matters and you have the chance through the 40 for 40 Fellowship to provide another researcher the opportunity to share their story.

APPAM is the Natural Place to Encourage New Scholars in our Field | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Aug 02, 2018 07:07 PM

I can still remember my first APPAM presentation in 1993 like it was yesterday. It was at 8 am on a Friday and all six of the panel members were from the West Coast, so we were bleary-eyed and tired. On my panel was a former university system provost, two leading scholars on higher ed governance, the President and CEO of the leading national nonprofit, a senior economist from a renowned think tank, and me—a graduate student at the RAND Graduate School. What an amazing opportunity!

The 2018 International Conference Was Truly Focused on the Theme and Location

Jul 31, 2018 02:08 PM

The conference was filled with great papers on vulnerable populations, new initiatives in cities, and sustainable development. I even chaired a session on public management and government sustainability. It was truly focused on the theme of Public Policy for Sustainable Metropolitan Development, with almost half of all papers mentioning “city” or “urban” or “metropolitan” in their titles.

Jul 30, 2018 01:37 PM

The 40th Anniversary of the Fall Research Conference is a great opportunity to innovate and we invite our attendees to do just that with the Innovation Lounge. Submit a proposal, due September 28. One of the most valuable and critical aspects of the annual Fall Research Conferences are the impromptu conversations attendees have in the hallways, after a session or over lunch, about a project they’re working on or an idea that they have been kicking around and would like some feedback on.
