The Journal of Public Deliberation (JPD) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal with the principal objective of synthesizing the research, opinion, projects, experiments and experiences of academics and practitioners in the multi-disciplinary field of deliberative democracy. Scholars and practitioners from around the world contribute to the field by publishing in JPD.
The journal was founded in 2005 as an initiative of DDC. In November 2010, The International Journal for Public Participation (2007 – 2010) merged with JPD as a joint venture between DDC and the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2).
The newDemocracy Foundation, which has long been associated with the journal through its membership in DDC, officially became a major sponsor of the Journal of Public Deliberation in 2017.
