"As the student assistant of the vibrant international research school the Netherlands Institute of Governance (NIG), I read about a large part of the amazing PhD research being done within the fields of Public Administration, Political Science and Governance. Around me I also see students of master programs within Public Administration and Organizational Science doing inspiring work. I think that by offering both Master- and PhD-students a platform to publish their great work, Public Note stimulates the improvement of the important research fields Public Administration, Governance and Political Science starting from the often overlooked research of students. I am proud to be a part of the team that is making this happen."
"While the network narrative has become dominant in contemporary public policy, the PhD trajectory about healthcare governance focuses on the meaning and practice of governing across traditional organizational boundaries for healthcare organizations and their management. Taken a practice-based approach, I’m interested in the actor-level work done over time in collaborative arrangements, and how traditional boundaries and care practices are reconfigured (or not). To challenge and stimulate young and upcoming scholars to share their work with a wider public, I’m pleased to work alongside fellow board members to further develop Public Note as a learning platform, and moreover, to strengthen ties between (PhD-)students in contributing to public debates."
"As secretary of Public Note, every paper first passes me before landing at the reviewer. I enjoy seeing the wide variety of papers being send in and to learn something new from each author. Similarly, I believe Public Note can be a platform for students as well as academia who, either through publishing, reviewing or reading, learn new skills in academic publishing or gain new insights in the various topics of the published articles. I am happy and motivated to contribute to Public Note, to enhance its possibilities and learning potential."
"I am a 2nd year PhD candidate with an interest in identity development processes and the influence of the social cultural environment in such processes. My main fascination revolves around understanding how different people utilize their identity in the face of challenges or threats. Outside of my academic work, my focus is on increasing advocacy and expanding visibility of young researchers and their great research works. I am proud to be a part of the team that is making this happen."
