Progress in Development Studies is an exciting new forum for the discussion of development issues, ranging from:

Poverty alleviation and international aid
The international debt crisis
Economic development and industrialization
Environmental degradation and sustainable development
Political governance and civil society
Gender relations
The rights of the child

Progress in Development Studies is a double blind peer reviewed journal.

Progress in Development Studies takes the view that development should be defined as change, whether positive or negative. Whilst most contributions focus on developing countries, this does not preclude the consideration of Eastern European, or indeed, so-called 'developed nations' in respect of the incidence of poverty, inequalities and processes of globalisation and related matters.

Truly international in scope, the journal provides you with up-to-the minute overviews of current knowledge in the field.

    Progress in Development Studies (PIDS) provides an international forum for the review of development-oriented work in the social, economic and environmental sciences. It publishes Main Papers (5000–7000 words in length), Progress Reports (2000 words) and Book Reviews (500–1000 words) and from time to time, short Commentaries or Observations (2000–3000 words) as one-off opinion pieces.

    Main Papers present overviews of the literature and thinking, or practice, pertaining to a particular subarea of development-related work. Although primarily presenting a synthesis or analytical review, the inclusion of empirically derived case study material is not ruled out, so long as it relates directly to, and has a bearing on the conceptual development of, the field being considered. The express aim of Progress Reports is to monitor significant advances in theory and/or practice in a given subfield and to provide a reasoned appraisal of new approaches. Progress reports on a given topic will appear annually over a period of three years. Commentaries and Observations are invited where authors wish to critique aspects of change within the field or recent publications that have appeared in PIDS.

    Peer Review Policy Progress in Development Studies adheres to a rigorous double-blind reviewing policy in which the identity of both the reviewer and author are always concealed from both parties.
