Impact Factor

Scopus SC Imago ranks public administration journals by citations. Its SJR indicator measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, expressing how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is. The measure Cites per Doc. (2 years) measures the scientific impact of an average article published in the journal within two years of publication; it is computed using the same formula as Journal Impact Factor ™ (Thomson Reuters). It also measures the impact within three years. TIJ ranked 82nd, Q3, worldwide in 2017 among the top 118 public administration journals. Its H Index is 10. Because TIJ publishes in a specialized field, it receives fewer citations than more generalized journals. Nonetheless, it publishes by far more material on public sector innovation than all other public administration journals.

Canadian Agriculture Living Laboratories Initiative: Collaborative Program
The goal of the Living Laboratories Initiative is to establish a nation-wide network of sites where groups both in and outside of government can collaborate to co-develop, assess and implement innovative solutions to address persistent agri-environmental issues. This is a novel approach to agricultural innovation, with farmers working directly with scientists and other partners to conduct experiments right on their farms. Essentially, the goal is to get best-management practices and technologies into the hands of farmers faster by working together.
As part of this initiative, there is a five-year, $10 million program called Living Laboratories Initiative: Collaborative Program (LLI:CP). The goal of this program is to establish collaborative innovation projects managed by not-for-profit organizations in identified ecosystems, called Living Laboratories. These Living Laboratories will be the first of a network within Canada.
More information on the program, such as the application process, eligibility requirements, funding, deadlines and assessment criteria is available in the Applicant guide.

What you could receive
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canadaís (AAFC), contribution for a project will not exceed $600,000 per year. The program ends March 31, 2023.
