Our school is defined by our evidence-based, data-driven approach to policy research across a unique grouping of disciplines, that inform collaborations across the university to address complex public policy and management problems and issues. Our research centers foster collaboration among world-class scholars whose complementary work generates new thinking and revealing insights into global policy issues. Our interdisciplinary collaborations through the Second Century Initiative and Next Generation Program provide additional avenues for research geared at addressing complex policy issues.
The Andrew Young School support staff help facilitate collaboration among world-class scholars whose complementary work generates new thinking and revealing insights into global policy issues.
We provide support through research administrator contacts, pre- and post-award resources, and can help connect you to other university resources and services.
The Andrew Young School maintains an open access repository of publications, working papers, reports and other scholarly products.
We encourage all faculty, staff and students to submit their research so it can be freely available to the public.
The faculty, research associates and students (FRAS) of the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies (AYS), Georgia State University (GSU), are committed to disseminating their research and scholarship as widely as possible.
In keeping with this commitment, AYSPS has adopted an Open Access Policy and invites all of its researchers and students to opt-in.
