Getting published in a high-ranked journal helps to sharpen individual academic skills and can be very beneficial for a scientific career.

EADI’s new Journal Mentoring Programme (JUMP) in cooperation with the European Journal of Development Research (EJDR), seeks to empower young researchers from the global South to publish in the EJDR. During the EADI NORDIC conference in Bergen, Norway, the first ever group of JUMP mentees attended several workshops and met their mentors.

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.
