experiences of practitioners.  ey should be focused

a 1,000-word limit. If you are interested in being con-
sidered to write a commentary, send your expression

Public Administration and the Disciplines.
PAR values dialogue between public administration
scholars who identify themselves as interdisciplinary
and scholars from traditional disciplines.  e goal of
Public Administration (PA) and the Disciplines is to
acknowledge the partnership that exists between PA
and the disciplines, and to facilitate strong intellectual
exchanges across f‌i eld boundaries, in both direc-
tions, that will advance theory and practice in public
administration. Essays for PA and the Disciplines will
usually be written by scholars trained in a discipline
on how developments in a specif‌i c subf‌i eld of their
discipline could contribute to advancing knowledge
about public administration.  e articles for this series
are also intended to show how current scholarship in
public administration can advance knowledge in the
discipline. Articles are expected to ref‌l ect cutting-edge
developments in the disciplines, show why these devel-
opments are important for PA, and also show why pub-
lic administration scholars’ attention to the theory can
improve its validity. Proposals and submissions should
be sent to Public Administration and the Disciplines
