The journal aims to encourage researchinto the formation and development of public policy while encouraging the application of diverse methods and theories to public policyand their politics within a histrocial perspective. In addition to social scientist and historians, the journal seeks to inform policy makers through a historical approach to public policy. The Journal of Policy History is intended to give voice to scholars interested in understanding public policies and their development through historical inquiry and interpretation. The journal publishes historical studies of specific policy areas and policy institutions, and explores continuities and shifts in policy over time. The journal encourages interdisciplinary research into the origins and development of public policy in the United States and other countries. Comparative historical approaches to the development of public policies are also welcomed. Each year the first issue is devoted to a special topic such as drug control policy, the refugee/asylum dilemma, urban policy, equal opportunity and affirmative action, and civil rights policy. This issue is also published separately as a paperback (Issues in Policy History) for course use.
