We founded the New England Journal of Public Policy (NEJPP) in 1985 when Edmund Beard was director of the then John W. McCormack Institute of Public Affairs. Padraig O’Malley, Senior Fellow, was founding editor and continued in that capacity, until the last paper issue was published in 2007. O’Malley is now the John Joseph Moakley Chair of Peace and Reconciliation at MGS, and continues as the journal’s online editor.

During the last five years, we had to close for all the usual reasons, which are encapsulated in one word - money or lack thereof.

We are now resuming the publication of the journal in an online format, and invite you to scroll through the archive of different issues to get an idea of the breadth of our interests. Most of all, we invite you to read the forthcoming issues, give us feedback, and help us in the search for authors whose work you believe should receive consideration for publication.

We welcome you and hope you will enjoy.
