About the Southern California Policy Review

Downtown Los AngelesThe Southern California Policy Review, or SCPR, is the newest iteration of a two decade tradition at the USC Price School of Public Policy.

In 1995, graduate students of Policy, Planning and Development (PPD) created a bi-annual publication to showcase current student work. In 1999, this student publication was formalized as the Policy and Practice Journal. For our twentieth anniversary, we transitioned from an academic to a professional focus.

SCPR publishes articles related to trends and research in areas including Public Administration, Public Policy, Urban Planning, Health Administration, and Non-profit Management. The editorial staff is composed of graduate students in each of these major degree programs at the Price School. We accept submissions from graduate students at schools of public policy nationwide in an effort to create an outlet for the exploration of important policy concerns in Southern California and beyond.

For more information regarding our latest publication and the submission process, please visit the Southern California Policy Review website.
