Carnegie Mellon's Heinz School Launches New "Paperless" Journal, Brings Real–World Practicality to Policy Issues

PITTSBURGH—Students at Carnegie Mellon University's H. John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management are putting the "public" back in "public policy" with the launch of the school's first journal, the "Heinz School Review" (HSR). The new "paperless" journal will be published twice a year in a Web-based format and is available to the public, free of charge, at

While HSR's online format gives a nod to Carnegie Mellon's strong technical reputation, its content reflects the Heinz School's interdisciplinary approach to policy research, application and implementation. Addressing a range of issues–from social and environmental policy to management and technology–the inaugural publication features interviews with Google CEO Eric Schmidt and the Heinz School's first dean, William Cooper. Additional articles explore themes of clean air rollbacks, food availability, human capital and workplace gender divides.

According to HSR, the purpose of Carnegie Mellon's first policy journal is to publish practical, functional research that bridges the gap between theory and application. "We hope to find innovative research and use the journal to demonstrate the importance and applicability of this research to policy makers," says student Project Manager Amy Wendholt. Heinz School students, faculty and alumni, as well as outside professionals and leaders, are all encouraged to contribute.

Located in Pittsburgh, Pa., the "Heinz School Review" is a student–run publication of Carnegie Mellon University's H. John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management. Further information on the "Heinz School Review," its staff and its articles can be obtained from the journal's Web site, or by calling 412-268-1610.
