Dr. Larry TerryRICHARDSON, Texas (March 26, 2004) — Public Administration Review (PAR), the oldest scholarly journal of public administration in the United States, will receive the Presidential Citation of Merit award from the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) at the organization’s national business meeting this Sunday, March 28, in Portland, Ore. PAR is based at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD).

ASPA President Walter Broadnax will present the award.

Dr. Larry D. Terry, an international authority in the field of public administration and executive vice provost at UTD, has served as editor of the highly regarded scholarly journal since 1999. Terry also is a professor of public administration in the university’s School of Social Sciences.

Prior to receiving the ASPA award, representatives from PAR will present their own annual awards. Those include the Dimock Award for the best lead article in PAR, the Mosher Award for the best article by an academician, the Brownlow Award for the best article by a practitioner, the Burchfield Award for the best book review essay and the Editors’ Choice Award for the most exemplary performance by a member of the PAR editorial board.

PAR has been recognized often in recent years. Most recently for the third consecutive year PAR was ranked the most frequently cited academic publication in the field of public administration. Prior to that, the publication was named the leading public administration journal in a survey by political scientists.
