The Public Management Research Association (PMRA) is a nonprofit academic membership association that furthers research on public organizations. PMRA grew out of a bi-annual series of public management research conferences and has substantially grown its membership base over time. In addition, PMRA now publishes the Journal of Public Administration, Research and Theory (JPART), one of the premier journals in the field. Both PMRA and JPART emphasize the links between the study of public institutions and their management and the study of public policy. One of the goals of PMRA and JPART is to foster multidisciplinary research from a variety of fields on government and governance. The organization supports the development of empirical and normative inquiry, theory building and systematic testing of theory consistent with the canons of social science, using the full range of quantitative and qualitative methodologies. Since 1991 the Public Management Research Association Conference has become the foremost gathering of leading public management scholars in both the US and around the world.
