Brian Anse Patrick, an associate professor at the University of Toledo, has founded and is asking for submissions to an online, much-needed, interdisciplinary journal on the “vapid self-serving excess by administrative ‘elites’ that have adapted themselves to functioning at general social expense.”
Anyone interested in exposing administrative foibles might consider approaches such as the following:
- Analyses of administrative rhetoric, themes, equivocations, techniques, either by methods of textual analysis or quantitative content analysis or by other means.
- Econometric studies.
- Comparative analyses.
- Case studies.
- Ethnomethodological or participant-observer studies.
- Literature reviews.
- Effects research.
- Nomothetic or historical analyses.
- Anthropological-based approaches
May the JAA thrive and grow.
