EJDR Opinion/Position Papers

The European Journal of Development Research (EJDR) invites submissions for its new Opinion and Position Paper section. The aim of this section is to provide a forum for authors to present their perspectives on a current international development issue.

An article in this section could, for example, synthesize and provide a critical take on lessons learned from recent research within development studies; or provide an analytical perspective on current development policy issues. We also encourage opinion pieces that foster new ideas for interdisciplinary thinking and suggest directions for future development research.

Submissions for this section are required to:

  • Clearly articulate the issue that is the subject of the paper.
  • Recognise alternative perspectives and/or opinions on the issue.
  • Clearly define implications for development policy and/or practice.

Where appropriate, reference should be made to recent research and/or publications, ideally using EndNote Harvard style.

Submissions for the Opinion and Position section are a maximum of 2,000 words. They must meet the standard formatting requirements of the EJDR and will be subject to EJDR’s standard double-blind peer review process.

When submitting, please tick the ‘Opinion/Position paper’ tick box on EJDR’s manuscript management system, available here: https://www.editorialmanager.com/eudr/default2.aspx
