CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition


The REVUE FRANÇAISE D'ADMINISTRATION PUBLIQUE (RFAP) hopes to provide a discussion area in the field of public administration and public policies, in particular in their comparative and European dimensions.

The journal publishes original articles in these fields written by academics or practitioners.

Created in 1977 by the Institut international d'administration publique (IIAP), RFAP has been edited by the Ecole nationale d’administration (ENA) since 2002.

It is made available in print by La documentation française and online by Cairn, an aggregator of humanities and social sciences journals.

In addition, RFAP is in partnership with PA@BABEL, a European database for academic publications in the field of public administration.

In order to guarantee the high quality of its content, all manuscripts are read anonymously by at least two reviewers. Submissions are accepted on the basis of their relevance to the publication’s editorial policy.

Authors interested in submitting a manuscript are asked to register online directly by opening an author account on our editorial interface (, after reviewing the instructions and author’s guide, in particular the rules on word count (maximum 40,000 characters, spaces and footnotes included) and the bibliographic policy.

When invited to do so by the publisher, reviewers and external coordinators of the issue may register by opening a “reviewer account.”
