With such a diverse membership in both academy and profession, the KAPS has played an essential role for meeting a wider range of intellectual needs in society and facilitating professional interactions through linking theory with practice in public policy.

The KAPS holds its academic conferences and publishes newsletters quarterly. And it publishes the Korean Policy Studies Review(in Korean) quarterly, and the International Journal of Policy Studies(in English) biannually.
