UNO Professor Named Managing Editor of Public Administration Journal
Omaha - Administrative Theory & Praxis, a quarterly journal on public administration theory, has named a UNO faculty member as its newest managing editor.
Angela Eikenberry, assistant professor in the School of Public Administration at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), will assume editorial duties in January. Thomas Catlaw from the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University will serve as the journal’s new editor in chief.
Before joining the UNO faculty in August, Eikenberry spent two years as an assistant professor in the Center for Public Administration and Policy at Virginia Tech. Eikenberry earned a bachelor’s degree from UNO in 1993. She received master’s and doctorate degrees from UNO, in 1998 and 2005, respectively.
“I am pleased to be part of the new editorial team of Administrative Theory & Praxis,” Eikenberry said. “ATP plays an important role in public administration as the primary voice of alternative and critical perspectives in our field. During the past eight years, ATP has been exceptionally well-managed under the editorialship of Dr. Richard Box. Under his leadership, the journal is now available through major electronic databases and continues to publish work of very high quality and cultivate a mix of newer and more established voices in public administration. We hope to continue this legacy as well as work to increase ATP's visibility in the wider scholarly field. ”
Richard Box, UNO School of Public Administration professor, led the journal for the past eight years as editor in chief. He joined the School of Public Administration in 1998.
Box received bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Southern Oregon State College. He also received a master’s from Golden Gate University and a doctorate degree from the University of Southern California.
