Local Area Development

Area Development and Policy Call for Papers

Written by admin

A new journal from the Regional Studies Association
Area Development and Policy
Area Development and Policy (ADP) aims to be a world-class journal publishing original academic research examining the multi-scalar and geographically differentiated relationships between economic and political organization, ways of life and work and their context, as they shape regions, cities, rural areas and their inter-relationships.

Geographically it concentrates on issues relating to the Greater BRICS, and aims to publish research emerging from these countries as well from the developed world. ADP recognizes that the economic, political, cultural and geographical context plays a fundamental role in shaping development. ADP therefore recognizes that research should examine the role of diverse national and regional institutional configurations and value systems, and that theories should derive from the experiences and values of these countries and regions and not necessarily from the possibly exceptional experiences of Northwest Europe and North America. ADP aims to expand common ground while accepting differences, improve mutual communication and increase cooperation and shared learning.

All submitted research is refereed, evaluated by a distinguished board of Editors and Editorial Advisors and accepted for publication only if it meets high scholarly standards of originality, significance and rigour in advancing understanding of area development and policy.

Along with standard Research Articles (8,000 words) and Review Articles (6,000 words), Area Development and Policy also welcomes Research Notes (short articles presenting the results of original research and which briefly situates the research in relation to the existing empirical and theoretical literature) of up to 4,000 words, and Commentaries (short articles commenting in a significant way on, or supplementing arguments and evidence in, a Research Article or a Review Article) of up to 2,000 words.

Authors are welcome to submit original Research Articles, Review Articles, Research Notes, and Commentaries dealing with themes relating to the mission of the journal, which may include, but are not confined to:
