The ASPA Section on Public Administration Research (SPAR) invites your nominations for the SPAR Best Book Award.We welcome nominations for books on public administration published in 2018 and 2019. The criterion for the award is a book that significantly contributes to research in public administration. All research methods are welcomed, as are books across the wide range of public administration research.
This recognition will be awarded at the annual ASPA National Conference in March 2020 in Anaheim CA. A nominating committee comprised of SPAR members and previous award winners will review each of the nominations and choose the award winner.
The deadline for receipt of nominations is January 3, 2020. Nominations should list the book title, author, and publisher, and include a one-page summary outlining the unique contributions of the book.
