With the economic prosperity achieved by Western Europe after WW II, the Asian tigers since 1960 and China and India in the last two decades, the field of growth and development is again a leading field of research in the economic sciences. An equally important challenge lies in explaining the volatility of growth – such as in Latin America in the eighties -- and why some countries get stuck in poverty traps. The diversity of geopolitical and institutional backgrounds of countries makes the understanding of growth and development processes an urgent and challenging task.
Indian Growth and Development Review publishes high quality peer-reviewed articles on economic growth and development with a special emphasis on emerging and developing economies. IGDR has a growing reputation as the best field journal in growth and development economics coming out of the fast emerging and developing countries around the world.
Each issue of the journal contains three sections: a research section containing high quality research articles which constitutes the core part of the journal, a policy debates section focusing on South Asia and Emerging Market issues, and a miscellany section. This three-in-one format is a key selling point of the journal.
For the research section, Indian Growth and Development Review considers any high quality academic research article in the field of growth and development. In addition, this section serves as an outlet for scholars working on growth and development research relating to India and neighboring countries. The editors invite prospective authors to submit both theoretical and empirical pieces of the highest scientific quality for publication.
The policy debates section in the Indian Growth and Development Review will carry a policy debate on an Indian, South Asian or Emerging Market issues. The aim is to bridge the gap between theories and hypotheses on one hand and policy-making on the other. Articles in this section will either take the form of a debate between leading scholars on a national level policy issue, or a focused academic piece on a specific policy issue. For policy issues relating to emerging markets, the topic discussed has to have significant overlap between India, the other economies in South Asia, and emerging markets. This section will consider both invited pieces as well as contributed pieces. For contributed pieces, the editors invite authors to submit articles of high scientific quality containing 7000-8000 words (this excludes wording related
to an abstract, a full set of references, and tables and diagrams). Articles must be clearly worded and in English.
The miscellany section will contain either 1) interviews with eminent economists and practitioners, 2) book reviews, or 3) pieces on novel teaching methods in economics higher education. While interviews with eminent economists and book reviews will be invited, the editors invite prospective authors to submit short focused pieces of no more than 3000 words on novel teaching methods that can aid teaching of economics and economic concepts. The pieces should be geared towards teachers and students at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. Teaching methods that involve the application of software (such as Mathematica) to calibrate models (such as growth models), or to investigate other economic problems, will be particularly encouraged.
The coverage of the journal includes, but is not restricted to:
Indian Growth and Development Review aims not only to further contemporary debate on growth and development issues in India, but to impact directly on decision-making processes in this area. Whilst similar journals comment on developments in the field, Indian Growth and Development Review seeks to influence and shape policy measures and education provision in India and the surrounding region.
Indian Growth and Development Review's tri-part composition offers subscribers a holistic view of growth and development issues. Whilst most of the journal's content will be made up of academic research papers, the journal also provides a forum for debate on national level policy issues either in India or surrounding countries, as well as an economics education section. Indian Growth and Development Review aims to develop discourse between academics, policy-makers and education providers and to impact directly on policy-making and higher education provision in India.
Unlike other specialized journals in the fields of growth and development, which treat growth and development separately, Indian Growth and Development Review combines these two fields and provides a broad and unified platform to address interrelated issues. It attempts to bridge the gap between theories and hypotheses on one hand and policy-making on the other by publishing a separate section on policy matters relating to the Indian subcontinent. The journal also caters to the teaching of economics, which must go hand in hand with the progress of research in the field.
