Diversity research in public administration is a critical area of scholarship and exploration, particularly given the changing demographics and its impact in public service. This paper reviews over thirty journal publications published between 2006 and 2011. Over 7000 articles have been published during this time period covering a variety of public administration issues. The journals selected include 20 of the top ranked journals in public administration (Bernick and Krueger, 2010) and all the section journals associated with the American Society of Public Administration. We review how many of these published articles have addressed issues of diversity. Data shows which journals publish the highest percentage of diversity articles and what types of diverse topics are being addressed. Analysis of the data highlights trends in diverse topics; including race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, faith and spirituality, class and equity, ageism, culture and language, and disabilities.
