Case studies of cross-jurisdictional policymaking
Collaborative governance and interface between sectors
Digital leadership and disruptive technology
- Focus on an issue of importance to public sector decision-makers.
- Review the empirical base of research for that issue, primarily using Australian and New Zealand evidence, but drawing on international studies where relevant. It must be clear that there is a sufficiently large body of existing empirical research on the topic that will be the subject of the review.
- Be 5,000-8,000 words in length.
- Be completed over a 6 month time period.
Before final approval to proceed with the review, all proposals must be considered by the journal's Editorial Board, comprising Australian and New Zealand public managers. For more information, see http://exeley.com/journal/evidence_base.
If you propose to incorporate an Evidence Base review into your project, provide a short description of the review.
This schedule must:
- Specify each stage of your project (i.e. project planning, fieldwork, preliminary findings, communication of final results).
- Within each stage, clarify specific tasks (i.e. develop ethics clearance procedures, submit manuscript for publication to journals, teach a class in an Executive Workshop).
This budget must:
-Specify all expenses which ANZSOG research funding would cover (i.e. research assistance, travel and accommodation (costed separately) for specific meetings or conferences).
-Specify each expense across each financial year of your project’s expected life (NB variations from a general trend in expenses must be justified).
- Regarding salary costs, specify:
o the estimated number of hours of research assistance required
o the hourly rate or yearly income of the staff concerned
o a detailed justification (150–200 words per individual concerned) of the requested salary support sought, including what tasks the employee/assistant would be expected to undertake, and the estimated number of hours that each of these tasks would require.
- Provide supporting evidence (where available) of all expenses that ANZSOG Research Funding would cover.
