CFP - Cannabis Policy: Challenges and Opportunities for PA
Cannabis policy is changing quickly at the state level. We contend that there are far more interesting questions regarding cannabis policy in the United States and its impact on public administration than have been touched by policy and administration scholars. The aim of this special issue is to foster greater attention to cannabis policy research within public administration. While cannabis lends itself to puns and plays on words about drug culture, we prefer titles and approaches that do not reinforce stereotypes or diminish the seriousness of cannabis policy. It is a significant industry that is reshaping American drug policy and requires rigorous social science research for understanding its implications on citizens and governance. See the attached call for details.

Digital Government: Business Model Development For Public Value Creation - A Dynamic Capabilities Based Framework
Bernd W. Wirtz, Paul F. Langer and Florian W. Schmidt
PAQ, Vol. 45 No. 3,
Rapid advances and the spread of digital technologies have changed the expectations of citizens, firms and organizations towards government services, which increasingly receive the call to transform services and structures according to changed needs and preferences. The concept of business model development provides a suitable approach for public institutions aiming at adjusting their services and operations. Since government institutions increasingly develop new services and products, this study provides a theoretic foundation to operational readiness as well as a guideline how to set up digital business models in a public sector context. Therefore, a framework is derived from conceptual studies in the field as well as related theoretical concepts such as business model theory in the public sector context, dynamic capacities and public value creation. Building on this foundation this study conceptualizes a process of business model development to create user oriented digital services in the public sector.
Keywords: Digital public business model; User Integration; public sector innovation; development; framework; dynamic capabilities, public value
