Open Public Administration Scholarship (OPAS) – a platform to display research-based teaching results in digital transformation of the public sector


I built a platform to quickly share the results of my courses with the public so that public administrators can access the information in plain language: Open Public Administration Scholarship (OPAS).

The knowledge for the short memos published here comes from my research-based seminars on the digitisation of the public sector. The students work together with a writing tutor and use an author’s guide developed by me to rewrite their (empirical) learning results in short memos in a generally understandable way. We translate the content into English, and, if possible, link directly to the administrative partners in order to be able to present the direct transfer into administrative practice.

This idea is based on discussions at the 2008 Minnowbrook III conference and published in this article in the Journal for Public Administration Research and Theory.

I am looking forward to feedback and further suggestions!
