Hoover Institution Director John Raisian and Research Fellow Tod Lindberg, editor of Policy Review, announced today that following the February-March 2013 edition, Hoover’s bimonthly journal will cease publication.
Policy Review brought together journalists and scholars to delve into the workings of government, political and economic systems, and the role of the United States in the world. The journal became a publication of the Hoover Institution beginning with issue 107 in 2001.
“Tod has done a terrific job developing a national and global influence for Policy Review under his leadership,” Raisian said. “Hoover looks forward to supporting Tod’s ongoing work as a fellow, encompassing both his scholarship and current affairs commentary.”
Lindberg has been editor of Policy Review for 14 years. “It’s been a great run, and I will miss editing the journal. But I would certainly rather have it said that my tenure ended too soon than that I stayed too long. Meanwhile, my personal research agenda has been growing exponentially, and I am looking forward to giving it my full-time attention at Hoover.”
“Policy Review has been an excellent vehicle for engaging journalists and scholars through publication in its pages,” Raisian said. “It has extended Hoover’s range and reach. Policy Review has been a bellwether for publishing longer essays related to public policy. As we look ahead, we are eager to develop new methods of disseminating work of this kind, and thus expanding the extent of our outreach efforts in timely ways.”
