This rapid growth has created come confusion about terminology and approaches to research in the field. We organize the network literature in public administration using compact citation networks to identify coherent subdomains focused on (1) policy formation, (2) governance and (3) policy implementation. We trace how these domains differ in their approach to defining the role of networks, relationships and actors and to what extent the articles apply formal network analysis techniques. Based on a subsequent content analysis of the sample articles, we identify promising research avenues focused on the wider adoption of methods derived from social network analysis and the conditions under which networks actually deliver improved results.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2016-09-12T13:10:55Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Schmitz, Hans Peter</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Networks in Public Administration : Current scholarship in review</dcterms:title> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Mergel, Ines A.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Mergel, Ines A.</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2014-07-04</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Lecy, Jesse D.</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2016-09-12T13:10:55Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Lecy, Jesse D.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
