This special issue welcomes articles which focus on different operational elements in various areas of public sectors worldwide, such as the optimisation of the management of public organisations, human resource management, public sector performance, e-government, etc. The goal of this special issue is to compile state-of-the art research, spanning modelling, theory, empirical studies, application and case studies in this emerging and rich important research area. We seek contributions that are rigorously executed, clearly and succinctly written, and innovative relative to what is currently known. In light of the scope, all papers must clearly demonstrate the relevance of their contributions with respect to the public sector. We seek contributions that have an accounting, management, regulatory or policy making dimension, and which may be theoretical, empirical or methodological, or a combination. The research may be contemporary, historical or comparative. We are particularly interested in novel and creative approaches to the investigation of these phenomena.
