Nepal Public Policy Review (NPPR) is a peer-reviewed journal published by Policy Research Institute (PRI), a policy think-tank of the Government of Nepal. PRI believes that the participation of the public in the policy formulation process enhances public ownership of the resultant policy and makes it effective. As such, it advocates and adopts a democratic process in policy formulation.
Unlike most of the mainstream journals that deal with specific issues, NPPR stands out as a unique channel that accepts research papers from a wide variety of themes and issues related to public policy.
These themes and issues include (a) development, infrastructure and economic affairs; (b) federal affairs, (c) legal issues, (d) governance and public service delivery; (e) political and social affairs; (f) national interests, foreign policy and strategic affairs; and (g) science, technology, and environment.
PRI publishes this journal to disseminate works that are relevant to the scope of PRI and meets expectations and standards of the academic and policy community. It is a double-blind peer-reviewed open access journal. There will be no article-processing and publication fee for accepted articles. However, a nominal fee will be charged for a printed copy. Audiences of NPPR are policymakers, practitioners, researchers, academicians and those interested in public policy issues.
NPPR will be driven and maintained by a board of NPPR. PRI will host it with necessary backstopping support.
