Leadership Research and Review (LRR) provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and insights on all aspects of leadership in the public sphere, including government, business, politics, and civil society. The journal publishes original research of high quality and is open to various methodological approaches (analytical modeling, empirical research, experimental work, methodological reasoning, etc.).

LRR welcomes the submission of papers from researchers and leaders internationally across public services, employing a wide range of research methods. The journal welcomes research papers with a focus on public leadership across the local, regional, state, and national levels of government, from all nations and world regions, and in cross-sector and non-governmental organizations. Research is invited on the varied dimensions of public leadership, including but not limited to strategy, community engagement, organizational culture, performance management, ethics, organizational change, institutional re-design, health, and politics.

Review papers presenting the state of the art of a research area and pointing out new directions for further research are also welcome. The scientific standards of LRR are guaranteed by a rigorous, double-blind peer-review process with ad hoc referees and the journal´s internationally composed editorial board.
