APPAM is dedicated to improving public policy and management by fostering excellence in research, analysis and education.

2017 APPAM Media Kit


The Association for Public Policy Analysis (APPAM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving public policy and management by fostering excellence in research, analysis, and education. APPAM has over 2,500 academic, practitioner, organizational, student, and institutional members.

APPAM promotes its mission through the following activities:

  • A multidisciplinary annual research conference that attracts the highest quality research on a wide variety of important current and emerging policy and management issues, and is structured to encourage substantive interaction among participants. The APPAM Fall Research Conference hosts over 250 sessions, 2,000 attendees, and dozens of exhibitors each November.  
  • Journal of Policy Analysis and Management (JPAM), a peer-reviewed multidisciplinary journal that publishes the highest quality research on public policy and management. Based on the 2015 Reuters ISI two and five-year impact factors, JPAM is ranked among the top three journals of public administration. In 2015, there were 265,315 JPAM article downloads and articles received over 10,000 unique monthly visitors.
  • A dedication in all activities to respecting and enhancing racial, ethnic, gender, disciplinary, and other forms of diversity among participants in all the Association's activities. The APPAM Diversity Committee created the Equity & Inclusion Diversity Fellowship to introduce student recipients to the world of public policy and APPAM, and foster a lifelong affiliation and engagement with both. Selected Fellowship recipients are honored at the annual APPAM Fall Research Conference with an award presentation.
  • Initiatives that include and foster participation in the Association among students interested in public policy and management. APPAM’s Regional Student Conferences allow students to present research across a wide variety of policy areas, through poster sessions and on conference panels with their peers.
  • In addition to the annual Fall Research Conference and Student Regional Conferences, APPAM hosts an annual International Conference and Institutional Forums. The International Conference was developed to focus on a specific policy concern shared by many countries, bringing global research and administrations together. APPAM Institutional Forums are panels, jointly hosted by APPAM and APPAM Institutional Members, which examine current policy issues.
