As this March edition of the Journal of Public Administration (JOPA) was finalised, the South African Association of Public Administration and Management (SAAPAM) had just received a joint feedback report, released by the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAF) and the National Department of Higher Education and Training (DoHET). The report confirms that JOPA is still one of the premier journals in the country. This dual process of evaluation was done hardly a year after their regular evaluations were conducted in 2011, which also had confirmed the accreditation of the Journal. In his maiden editorial, after his formal appointment as the editor of the Journal, Maserumule raised several issues that pertain to the status of the discipline, which the editorship of this Journal should attend to, in order to maintain the status that it had achieved in terms of its contribution to the evolution of the discipline.
