Call for papers:

Public Money & Management theme on ‘Developing civil servants’

Guest editor: Lord Bichard, Chairman of PMM’s editorial board

Building, developing and retaining an impartial, efficient and effective civil service to work for parliaments is a major problem in many countries, particularly since austerity management was introduced following the global financial crisis.

This PMM theme, also the subject of PMM Live! 2019, which will be held in the House of Lords on 7 November, will present a collection of articles on the latest thinking on how to achieve transparency and fairness in government. It will highlight not just creating a paid service that can ‘speak truth unto power’ but also one that is capable of managing major projects, commissioning services and demonstrating creativity and enterprise.

Submissions of debate articles, new development articles and full papers are invited (see https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rpmm20/current; or ask Michaela Lavender for author notes). Articles can include all aspects of civil service development, for example: recruitment, retention, training, secondments, appraisals and career management.

The deadline for submissions for the theme is Friday 30 August 2019. Debate articles and new development articles should be submitted directly to PMM’s managing editor (Michaela Lavender: [email protected]). Full papers should be submitted via Scholar One (follow the links on the webpage above). Please select the ‘special ‘issue’ option: Developing civil servants.

PMM has a strong reputation for joining up research and practice, as well as disciplines and professional specialities. It has been publishing for nearly 40 years, now with eight issues a year. PMM articles are reviewed by a practitioner and an academic to ensure that they are readable and useful in the real world. PMM’s circulation includes over 15,000 CIPFA members, as well as central government departments, local and international universities.
