Forum for Development Studies
Forum for Development Studies was established in 1974, and soon became the leading Norwegian journal for development research. While this position has been consolidated, Forum has gradually become an international journal, with its main constituency in the Nordic countries. The journal is owned by the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) and the Norwegian Association for Development Research .
Forum aims to be a platform for development research broadly defined – including the social sciences, economics, history and law. All articles are peer-reviewed. In order to maintain the journal as a meeting place for different disciplines, we encourage authors to communicate across disciplinary boundaries. Contributions that limit the use of exclusive terminology and frame the questions explored in ways that are accessible to the whole range of the Journal’s readership will be given priority.
We encourage articles with a solid empirical foundation, including empirical findings based on the practical implementation of development projects, but also contributions of a more theoretical nature. In particular, we welcome articles that explore new perspectives within development studies, and examine the implications of such theories for the study of development processes.
Gender & Development
Since 1993, Gender & Development has aimed to promote, inspire, and support development policy and practice, which furthers the goal of equality between women and men. This journal has a readership in over 90 countries and uses clear accessible language.
Each issue of Gender & Development focuses on a topic of key interest to all involved in promoting gender equality through development. An up-to-the minute overview of the topic is followed by a range of articles from researchers, policy makers, and practitioners. Insights from development initiatives across the world are shared and analysed, and lessons identified. Innovative theoretical concepts are explored by key academic writers, and the uses of these concepts for policy and practice are explored. Each issue includes an up-to-date resources section, listing publications, electronic resources, and organisations.
In addition to thematic articles, Gender & Development also contains book reviews on the latest publications relevant to this field, and a Views, Events, and Debates section, with news and views on current events and trends in gender equality and women’ rights, and interviews and debates on cutting-edge issues.
Journal of Development Effectiveness
Journal of Development Effectiveness aims to support evidence-based policy making to enhance development effectiveness. It will do this by publishing high quality papers reporting evidence of the impact of projects, programs and policies in developing countries, and discussions of experience in conducting impact evaluations and using their findings to inform policy and program design. Systematic reviews and replication studies are particularly encouraged. The Journal does not subscribe to any one approach to impact evaluation, but requires that the techniques employed be rigorously applied, with a preference for studies which have been well contextualized with an appropriate use of mixed methods. The Journal will also publish papers of a more conceptual nature related to impact evaluation, as well as papers covering practical aspects of conducting impact studies.
Journal of Human Development and Capabilities
Journal of Human Development and Capabilities: A Multi-Disciplinary Journal for People-Centered Development is the peer-reviewed journal of the Human Development and Capabilities Association. It was launched in January 2000 to provide new perspectives on challenges of human development, capability expansion, poverty eradication, human well being, markets, growth, social justice and human rights. The human development approach recognizes that development is about more than just economic growth. It is also about improving the well being of people, and expanding the choices and opportunities they have. Development policies cut across economic, social and political issues.
The Journal publishes original work in economics, philosophy, social sciences and other disciplines that expand concepts, measurement tools and policy alternatives. It provides a forum for an open exchange of ideas among a broad spectrum of policy makers, economists and academics. It addresses issues at global, national and local levels. Human development is becoming a ‘school of thought’ for alternative economic approaches, and the Journal will act as a conduit for members and critics of this school.
Development and Change
One of the leading international journals in the field of development studies and social change, Development and Change now appears six times a year, including the Development and Change Forum issue. Truly interdisciplinary in character, it includes contributions from all the social sciences and all intellectual persuasions concerned with development. With its history of publishing unconventional and challenging articles, the journal covers a broad range of topics in a mix of regular and special theme issues. Development and Change is devoted to the critical analysis and discussion of the complete spectrum of development issues.

Journal of Development Studies
The Journal of Development Studies was the first and is one of the best known international journals in the area of development studies. Since its foundation in 1964, it has published many seminal articles on development and opened up many new areas of debate. We invite articles from across academic disciplines, but priority is given to papers which are:
- provide critical tests, based on empirical work, of alternative theories, perspectives or schools of thought
- relevant to important issues in development economics, politics and policy.
The editors also welcome critical surveys of the literature in important fields of development policy and practice. Each issue keeps the reader up-to-date with the latest research and also contains reviews of recently-published books on development.
Journal of International Development
The Journal of International Development aims to publish the best research on international development issues in a form that is accessible to practitioners and policy-makers as well as to an academic audience. The main focus is on the social sciences – economics, politics, international relations, sociology and anthropology, as well as development studies – but we also welcome articles that blend the natural and social sciences in addressing the challenges for development. The Journal does not represent any particular school, analytical technique or methodological approach, but aims to publish high quality contributions to ideas, frameworks, policy and practice, including in transitional countries and underdeveloped areas of the Global North as well as the Global South. The Journal has two special features: Field Reports, which are short articles contributing to development policy and practice, and invited Policy Arenas, which comprise several articles focusing on a theme with a policy dimension. The Journal is published in association with the Development Studies Association.
