Governance is changing rapidly, and change brings compelling ethical challenges. Sponsored by the American Society for Public Administration, International City/County Management Association, Council of State Governments, and the Council on Governmental Ethics Laws, Public Integrity is the foremost journal on ethics and leadership in all aspects of modern public service. Written for both scholars and practitioners as well as concerned citizens, its driving force is the notion of integrity that is so basic a part of democratic life. The journal features refereed articles, case studies, exemplar profiles, field reports, commentaries, and book reviews on a broad spectrum of ethical concerns in local, state, national, and international affairs.

Members of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) are entitled to a discount individual price of $45.00 US and $55.00 Foreign. ASPA members can purchase a subscription here.

"Public Integrity is the premiere journal in the field focusing on ethical administration and accountability in public organizations. It provides timely and valuable lessons for academics, practitioners and students of the field. It is a 'must have' for any library that is serious about having a comprehensive public administration collection." -Stephen E. Condrey, Ph.D. President, American Society for Public Administration

"Public Integrity is where I find the most up-to-date scholarship on public service ethics. I recommend it to all my students." -Mary E. Guy, University of Colorado, Denver

"Each volume of Public Integrity is a delight to read for scholars and practitioners who want to stay current on ethical issues and research so vital to all aspects of modern public administration." -Richard Stillman, University of Colorado at Denver

"The public administration community is fortunate to have scholars from the academic and practitioner community sharing their insights on timely ethics issues. Given the broad spectrum of issues that are covered, readers are provided an understanding of the underpinnings of ethical dilemmas and responses to challenges we face in our various public service capacities. I am sure you will find this journal to be a great resource. I commend the editors and editorial board members for undertaking this publication." -Cheryle A. Broom, ASPA Past President and King County Auditor

"Each issue of Public Integrity generates an ethical consciousness that is so critically needed in the public sector. The quality of its articles places it as one of the leading journals of our profession." -Louis C. Gawthrop, University of Baltimore

"At last a journal dedicated to the first concern of democratic government: an open and honest process. Public Integrity should be essential reading not only for academics and government officials but also for citizens concerned about the future of democracy around the world." -Frederick M. Hermann, NJ Election Law Enforcement Commission
