Public Money & Management
Public Money & Management is an academic journal which was established by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) in 1981 as Public Money to be "an independent journal to promote discussion of public sector policy making". The journal obtained its current title in 1988. The journal continues to be owned and managed by CIPFA, who have licensed Routledge to handle sales and marketing, manufacturing, and distribution. The editor-in-chief is Jane Broadbent (Roehampton University); the deputy editor is Andrew Massey (Exeter University); the managing editor is Michaela Lavender (CIPFA). The journal has grown from three issues a year to a bimonthly journal covering international public management and finance.
As well as general issues, the journal publishes two or three special issues a year which include articles on topical themes. These have included:
- Charities: accounting, accountability and governance
- Public sector leadership
- Decentralisation and the big society
- Public administration in an era of austerity
- Trust and accountability in public financial management
