Aims & Scope
Maine Policy Review provides timely, independent analysis of public policy issues affecting Maine and/or the region. Articles with a national or international focus also are considered as long as their relevance to public policy formulation in Maine is clearly established by the author.
Maine Policy Review is nonpartisan and encourages debate among its contributors. It is intended for a diverse audience, including state policymakers; government, business, and nonprofit leaders; students; and general readers with a broad interest in public policy. Many of its articles are based on some form of applied research or independent inquiry. Occasionally, the journal includes more technical or scientific articles. However, the journal’s philosophy is that articles must be understandable and informative to a diverse readership.
