Current research projects

ANZSOG’s research program addresses key contemporary issues in public administration, policy development and management. Our distinctive approach draws on the strength of our networks of scholars, practitioners and member governments in Australia and New Zealand, favouring collaborative and comparative research that will be of practical assistance to governments and the communities they serve. This page contains details of 2023 and 2024 projects funded through the ANZSOG Research Model.

Evidence base journal

ANZSOG's peer-reviewed journal Evidence Base was established in 2012 and published reviews of evidence informing decision-making in specific policy areas, with a focus on determining ‘‘what works?’, based on the evidence. Evidence Base is designed for public sector decision-makers and is part of ANZSOG’s broader mission of connecting the public sector, academics and other policy specialists. The full Evidence Base archive is available here and contains research on a range of policy areas.

Research insights

The Research Insights series supports ANZSOG's mission of improving public sector leadership by disseminating conceptual and practical reflections from our network of expert practitioners and academics, ranging across the span of ANZSOG’s work. Research Insights publications include papers produced as part of our Research Model projects and other work with governments, as well as Curated Conversations from multi-jurisdictional forums, which can inform public sector practice more broadly

ANZSOG research for the 2019 APS Review

ANZSOG was commissioned by the Independent Review of the Australian Public Service, chaired by David Thodey, to provide a range of research papers on key issues facing the APS over coming decades, to inform the Review’s deliberations. These papers were produced by our network of academics and practitioners and fed into the Review's final recommendations, which were released in 2019, and remain a valuable resource for debate about the future of the APS.
