Public Personnel Management

eISSN: 19457421 | ISSN: 00910260 | Current volume: 53 | Current issue: 2 Frequency: Quarterly
Founded by the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR), Public Personnel Management (PPM) is published specifically for human resource executives and managers in the public sector. Each quarterly edition contains in-depth articles on trends, case studies and the latest research by top human resource scholars and industry experts.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Public Personnel Management is committed to bridging the nexus between public administration practice and management research by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas between scholars from the academic and practitioner communities. Our primary emphasis will focus on research exploring all aspects of the work environments, organizations, individuals, and decisions that are part of the theory and practice of public human resource management. The interests of academic and practitioner audiences will be served through refereed articles, case studies, and commentaries that explore a broad spectrum of timely management issues and concerns at the local, state, federal, and international levels.
