A paper co-authored by Patria de Lancer Julnes, professor in the University of Baltimore's School of Public and International Affairs and an expert in effective government, has been declared one of the most influential in the 75-year-history of Public Administration Review, a professional journal dedicated to advancing theory and practice in public administration.

De Lancer Julnes, a School of Public Affairs and Administration doctoral alumna at Rutgers University-Newark and SPAA Dean Marc Holzer authored the paper, entitled "Promoting the Utilization of Performance Measures in Public Organizations: An Empirical Study of Factors Affecting Adoption and Implementation," in 2002.

In assessing the influence of the work, Public Administration Review's editorial board described it as an "important paper in the performance management literature, this article was one of the first studies to discuss why the use of performance measurement for improving management performance is surprisingly limited."

Stephen Percy, dean of the UB's College of Public Affairs, praised the achievement of Prof. de Lancer Julnes.

"This recognition in the mostly highly respected publication outlet in the discipline of public administration gives testimony to the high caliber of Dr. Patria Julnes' scholarship and its impact on the discipline," Percy said. "Our college is very proud to have such an influential colleague."

More than 3,500 articles have appeared throughout the lifespan of the journal. The editorial board selected the 75 most influential after an eight-month process of data collection, reflection, and deliberations, including a review of various data sources such as citations, reprints and awards.

The complete list of 75 articles is available here.
