Journal for Public Deliberation: Welcome to Volume 7, Issue 1

The Journal for Public Deliberation (JPD), which entered into a partnership with IAP2 last year, just released its latest issue (Volume 7, Issue 1).

From the welcome article:

The principal objective of JPD is to synthesize research, projects, and experiences of academics  and practitioners in the emerging multi-disciplinary field of deliberative democracy. By doing this, we hope to improve research and practices in this field to enable democracies to be more citizen friendly. JPD publishes articles, essays, and reviews for academic researchers and field practitioners who require the latest information and highest quality theory, research, and analysis concerning public deliberation and public participation. Submitted articles are double-blind peer reviewed by members of the JPD board of editors.

The “articles” section of JPD is designed for high quality theories, methods, and analyses of public deliberation and public participation. We encourage research and writing partnerships between practitioners and academics. These submitted evidentiary-based articles should represent high quality scholarly research that is grounded in a disciplinary literature and considered at the cutting edge of the field in terms of extending philosophical, theoretical and/or research horizons.

The “essay” section of JPD is designed for insights into the successes, problems, and best practices of public deliberation and public participation efforts. These field experiences may represent examples from government, community, or business contexts.

Please have a look, and let us know what you think. The next issue is scheduled to appear in Spring of 2012.
