European Journal of Development Research (EJDR)
The European Journal of Development Research (EJDR) is a multi-disciplinary journal that seeks to broaden our understanding of the processes that advance or impede human development, whether from a political, economic, sociological or anthropological perspective. It is published five times a year by Palgrave/McMillan on behalf of EADI.
The EJDR is recognized by the International Social Science Citation Index.
EADI members receive free access to the EJDR
(printed copies and/or online access).
EJDR Early Careers Initiative
The European Journal of Development Research (EJDR) recognises the need to provide a forum for the publication of original and high quality research by individuals that are early in their research career. By ‘early’ we intend up to 5 years post-doctorate; or with 5 years or less research experience.
We understand that producing publishable research requires the understanding of the journal peer-review and publication process. This is in addition to requirements for the preparation of papers to abide by EJDR’s standards in terms of content, and to follow EJDR’s instructions for authors in terms of form. Early careers researchers may not always be familiar with these processes. EJDR’s early careers initiative has been designed to assist with the understanding of this process. It is a ‘supported learning’ submissions route for early careers authors, to help fulfil their potential.
Authors whose manuscripts are eligible for the early careers initiative will benefit from:
- Initial feedback on the manuscript (upon submission, before it is sent out for blind peer review): this is to ensure the paper is strong, and that it will be assessed on its merit by reviewers.
- Advice on the best way of incorporating reviewers’ feedback.
EJDR has appointed Dr Tewodaj Mogues as Editor for Early Careers Submissions.
