The Journal Public Administration and Regional Studies (PARS) is a scientific journal, in the field of Administrative sciences and connected scientific fields, such as legal, social, and political studies, which supports the mission of research and teaching activities of our faculty by disseminating the results of scientific research. The main purpose is to actively integrate our academic community’s relevant scientific achievements into the national and European community of scientific journals. Edited by The Faculty of Law and Administrative Sciences of "Dunarea de Jos" University of Galati, Romania, the journal aims at ensuring the national, European, and international dissemination of the highest theoretical and applied scientific findings of various researchers, teachers, and other professionals in the field of Administrative sciences (and its aforementioned associated domains), from Romania and abroad.
Aim and Scope
PARS offers the opportunity to pave the way to the expansion of scientific research, by publishing the newest findings and trends in national and foreign theoretical and applied research, through an in-depth and scientific methodology-based analysis of the specificities of administrative phenomena and their context and evolution, both at a national level and regional and European level. Its impact concerns the complexity of public administration systems and activities, but also its inseparable connections with European law, public law, politics, economics, etc., viewed from the broader perspective of contemporary challenges that public administration must face. In agreement with the requirements and standard values and principles of these domains, our journal welcomes contributions pertaining to Studies, Book Reviews, Public Administration systems (models, organization, functioning, etc.), and related phenomena (reform, innovation, public service), Public and European Law, Case Studies, Articles.
