Quality of Evidence

The three articles; Leslie-Bole and Perramond (2017), Piotrowski (2017), and Rivera and Ward (2017) on public administration are well written and captures the intended message. These articles are peer reviewed and clearly indicate how data was collected and analyzed. However, the article on “open government reform” by Piotrowski (2017) is the most professional and well written. The author has read very widely as evidenced by the use of a wide range of references. The author who has worked as researcher for Open Government Partnership Independent Review Mechanism for the United States seems to understand public policy and administration of the Second National Action Plan as evidenced in his argument that “open government initiatives which include transparency, participation and collaboration policies have become a major administrative reform (p. 3). Leslie-Bole and Perramond (2017) and Rivera and Ward (2017) used a wide range of well updated references to support ideas on public policy and administration.
