Progress in the science of public policy can be enhanced by the effective utilization of scientific contributions made by different researchers across the world. This goal can be achieved through translation and transfer of scientific literature into different languages, which can then serve as a platform for new research efforts to expand the horizons of knowledge in this field. Scientific-research journals are among the most credible, prestigious, and up-to-date sources of information and means of knowledge dissemination in any scientific field. The Journal of Public Policy and Administration, which is being published by the Public Administration Committee (PAC) of the UK Joint University Council (JUC), plays such a role in the field of public policymaking. The present paper reports on the most important findings contained in issue #4 of volume #33 of this journal, which was published with the title “Special Issue: Questioning Policy Design” in October 2018. The report aims to contribute to the knowledge of political science researchers and public policymakers about the latest findings in this field.
