Scholarly Impact

Central to the value of the Menino Survey is the academic rigor of the project and process, and its scholarly impact. It is the only scientifically rigorous survey of American mayors, based on live interviews with the mayors themselves. Given the integrity of the data-gathering process and their relevant expertise, survey co-authors—Professors Einstein, Glick, and Palmer—have leveraged survey findings to influence the field and deepen the body of academic literature pertaining to U.S. mayoral leadership and decision-making. They have published multiple award-winning scholarly journal articles, including in Urban Affairs Review and American Politics Research, as well as a book with Cambridge University Press.
