Voted best in Public Integrity 2018

Announcing the best publications in Public Integrity for 2018, Volume 20, in three categories: Best Article, Best Guest Editorial, and Best Book/Film Review.  These scholars received the most votes as determined by members of the Public Integrity Editorial Team; its Executive Editorial and Editorial Review Boards; and all current members of the ASPA Section on Ethics and Integrity in Governance (SEIGOV).

This year was a first both in the record number of votes submitted, and in that all categories have ties for first place.  Each winner appears in this special symposium issue; has their award featured at the official Public Integrity website at:  https://www.aspanet.org/ASPA/ASPA/Publications/Public-Integrity-Content/Public-Integrity.aspx; receives recognition in the 2019 ASPA Conference Program; and all winners will receive an individual Award Certificate to be conferred at the 2019 ASPA Section on Ethics and Integrity in Governance Annual Business Meeting in Washington, DC.

Congratulations to all winners!  Each are listed below, alphabetized by surname in each of the three categories.  The authors’ contact information, should you wish to reach out to them with congratulations or comments, is featured on the first page of each link, below.



You can enjoy free access to these articles, exclusively via this page, until the end of July 2019.
