Founded in 1968 by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, State and Local Government Review is the official journal of the Section on Intergovernmental Administration and Management (SIAM) of the American Society for Public Administration.
State and Local Government Review (SLGR), peer-reviewed and published quarterly, provides a forum for the exchange of ideas among practitioners and academics that contributes to the knowledge and practice of state and local government politics, policy, and management. Of particular interest in SLGR are articles that focus on state and local governments and those that explore the intergovernmental dimensions of public-sector activity.
SLGR welcomes manuscripts that focus on subnational governments and those that explore the intergovernmental dimensions of public-sector activity. The journal is comprised of four sections: General Interest (research articles), Research Notes (shorter research pieces), Reviews & Essays (book reviews, literature reviews, essays), and Governance Matters (practitioner-focused pieces).
