Inaugural Winter Edition Published –

The Sanford Journal of Public Policy proudly announces the publication of its first-ever winter edition. The Journal is available for free in digital form here, and hard copies are available for purchase here.

This edition of the Journal features articles by two Sanford graduates, Rachel Leven and Jamie Attard. Rachel writes about cost management in North Carolina’s electronics recycling program, and Jamie discusses the effectiveness and uses of the Access to Medicine Index, which evaluates pharmaceutical companies’ efforts to make essential medicines widely available around the world.

Sanford Journal staff members are hard at work on our spring edition, which we expect to publish in May. In the interim, check out the Sanford Journal Blog, which features pieces by professors, students, and alumni.

On behalf of the Journal, I’d like to thank the Sanford community for supporting us in this endeavor. Thanks for reading, and have a great day.

About the Journal –

The Sanford Journal of Public Policy was created in 2009 as a forum for public policy students and professionals to contribute to the current policy discourse through insightful analysis and innovative solutions.

The Sanford Journal is run by the graduate students of the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University and is published online and in print twice annually. The Journal solicits articles across the spectrum of public policy in a variety of formats, including policy research and position papers, issue briefs, opinion pieces, reviews of recently published books, and interviews with policy professionals.

In addition to the Journal itself, the SJPP administers a blog that serves as a place where public policy students, academics, and practitioners can stay connected to current policy discussions and express their own views on today’s policy challenges.

The views and opinions expressed in the Journal and on the website are the authors’ own and do not necessarily represent the views of the Sanford School of Public Policy or Duke University.
