Journal of Development Studies

Journal of Development Studies

One of the best known international journals in the area of development studies. Since its foundation in 1964, it has published many seminal articles on development and opened up new areas of debate.
Priority is given to papers which are:

  • relevant to important current research in development policy, theory and analysis
  • make a novel and significant contribution to the field
  • provide critical tests, based on empirical work, of alternative theories, perspectives or chools of thought

The journal invites articles that are interdisciplinary or focused on particular disciplines (e.g. economics, politics, geography, sociology or anthropology), with an expectation that all work is accessible to readers across the social sciences.
