The Developing Economies is a multi-disciplinary quarterly journal of development studies that publishes original research articles on issues relating to developing countries, transition and emerging economies, and developed countries before the take-off. Its unique feature is to welcome both quantitative articles supported by statistical evidence, and qualitative articles based on new data and/or a deep understanding of a specific country, region, or event, which explain new hypotheses, viewpoints, or insights.
