Journal of Science Policy & Governance ReleaseS Volume 19, Issue 01 | CELEBRATING 10 YEars of PUBLISHING
JSPG Celebrates a Decade as a Publishing Leader in Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy
WASHINGTON, DC (November 1, 2021) - The Journal of Science Policy & Governance (JSPG) is pleased to release Volume 19, Issue 01, marking 10 years since our first published standard issue in 2011. To commemorate this occasion, we have taken a historical perspective by focusing on Celebrating a Decade of Publishing Innovative Policy Solutions Designed by the Next Generation.
This standard issue of JSPG has 13 practical and innovative articles addressing topics such as food sustainability on land and sea; the intimate relationship between climate change, public health and security; and the need for institutional reforms that can lead to a more equitable and ethical policymaking process to improve our society.
“The fact that 10 years apart, both of these standard issues focused largely on environmental, health and research policies, points out the evergreen nature of these policy topics, but also the incredibly innovative solutions designed by our authors to address critical and timely topics of their time,” said Adriana Bankston, JSPG CEO & Managing Publisher. “This volume highlights solutions designed by the next generation to address evergreen policy topics in a manner that is adaptive to the needs of our society today."
As JSPG celebrates 10 years since our first standard issue and looks ahead at the next decade of publishing, the journal remains committed to its mission of serving as a platform and vehicle for students, post-docs, policy fellows, early career professionals, and young scholars of all academic and professional backgrounds to contribute nuanced, bold, and innovative solutions to address the widest range of problems, threats, and opportunities at the intersection of science, technology, innovation, public policy and governance.
The Journal of Science Policy & Governance (JSPG) is a nonprofit organization and open-access peer-reviewed publication managed by and for students, policy fellows and young scholars in science, technology and innovation policy. JSPG publishes high-quality articles covering the widest range of topics in formats that are accessible to policymakers. Since 2011, JSPG has served as a vehicle for students and early career researchers to bolster their research and writing credentials in science policy.
