PARS – Public Administration and Regional Studies – is the official scientific journal of Faculty of Law and Administrative Sciences, Galati, Romania, published in the field of public administration by "Dunărea de Jos” University of Galati, Romania. The reputation of Faculty of Law and Administrative Sciences as a highly esteemed institution has increased unceasingly and it is a known fact that our faculty has steadily attracted more and more students willing to enroll since its establishment. Our journal has certainly had a major contribution to this reputation and has benefited over the years of the invaluable support of expert university teaching staff from our country or abroad. All these people have contributed to the reinforcement of PARS as one of great value in the domain of administrative sciences and regional studies.

The journal was founded in 2008 to stimulate research in this domain and to encourage teachers, researchers, and practitioners to disseminate the results of their work. Over the years, there has been a great variety of topics related to the main scientific area and a permanent preoccupation with self-improvement and with raising the quality level. The scientific board is made up of distinguished academics from the national and international research fields of administrative sciences. The selection process carried on by our reviewers has been based on rigorous scientific criteria and it has also constantly tried to provide an objective yet friendly analysis of topics presented by the authors in their submitted papers.

The articles are written in one of the two internationally spread languages: English or French. By approaching subjects of maximum interest, the papers prove the importance of the joint effort of academics who share the same values and make their own contribution to the preservation of these values.

The journal has acquired greater visibility by being included in research databases, namely EBSCO, CEEOL, HeinOline and REPEC.
