The National University of Mongolia (NUM) and Hansung University of South Korea proudly announce the launch of the academic journal, International Journal of Public Administration and Consulting /ISSN 2586-355X/. The journal is a result of the two-year project, Capacity Building for the Public Administration Department of NUM 2015-2017, funded by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).
One of the project’s goals was to establish a peer-reviewed, international public administration journal. Prof. Dr. Burmaa, Director of the Department of Public Administration, stated “This academic journal represents an important step in the ongoing development of NUM’s Department of Public Administration. We now have an international journal based in Mongolia that will provide a forum for scholars and practitioners to share important work in the field of public administration on the international stage. We are very proud to have launched the journal and excited about its future prospects.”
The journal is the first English language public administration journal its kind in Mongolia. The journal creates a new platform for the public administration community where knowledge can be shared by both national and international scholars as well as practitioners.
