The Journal of Public Procurement covers all aspects of public procurement at a local, regional, national and international level. Multi-disciplinary, the journal examines public procurement from the perspectives of management, law, economics and politics.
The Journal of Public Procurement positions itself as the leading academic journal providing high quality research with impact in the area of public procurement (PP). We particularly encourage research that embraces an interdisciplinary approach that more closely recognises the interconnection between public procurement and the private sector activities of sourcing and supply. Thereby being salient and pertinent to practitioners, institutions, policy development/shaping as well as contributing to the academic knowledge in this field. Furthermore, we are open to exploration of “arm’s length public bodies” that are indirectly or directly connected with mainstream public sector regulation and authority/administration.
The Journal of Public Procurement (JOPP) is multi-disciplinary and employs a broad approach towards methods and styles of research. Public procurement refers to examining the sourcing and purchase of goods, services and works by public organisations, being national or local governments.
Further, we acknowledge that:
Procurement is more than the purchase of goods and services, and recognises the management of external resources in a wider sense. As a result, the Journal publishes research in all aspects of the interconnection between public buying and private sector sourcing and supplying including the supply chain as a whole and hybrid formats like public private partnerships.
Public not as a specific institutional role (state in a wider or closer sense, NGOs etc.), but more a functional understanding of contributing to a public task. This includes exploration of “arm’s length public bodies” that are indirectly or directly connected with mainstream public sector regulation and authority/administration.
The coverage of the journal includes topics such as procurement policy, sustainable and responsible public procurement, social impact bonds, concession contracts, public-private partnerships, procurement strategic planning and scheduling, contract award methods, contract management, renegotiation, corruption, transparency and accountability issues, performance evaluation, innovation, social value, green procurement, circular economy, procurement methods and techniques, suppliers’ relations, organizational design, human resource management, public procurement and relational contracting, behavioural and social attributes as well as more substantive areas such as laws and regulations, procurement economics and politics, and procurement ethics.
Within that understanding, we have neither a specific methodological nor a specific disciplinary focus. High quality research from economics, management, law, political sciences and other disciplines is welcome. We particularly encourage research that embraces an interdisciplinary approach that more closely connects with the practical context. We are keen to witness robust and thorough methodological approaches and standards as well as novel approaches that allow the exploration of novel approaches and concepts.
