Subscriptions and submissions

Subscribe or submit to Policy Quarterly—a journal devoted to public policy co-produced by the IGPS and the School of Government, and available free online.


The journal welcomes contributions of about 4,000 words, written on any topic relating to governance, public policy and management. Articles submitted will be peer reviewed. Please submit articles to the Editor:

Although issues will not usually have single themes, special issues may be published from time to time on specific or general themes, such as marking significant events. In these cases, and on other occasions, contributions may be invited from particular people.


The current issue of this journal is available in PDF format on this website, and and all previous issues are available through the Victoria University of Wellington Open Journal System.
