Notes for Contributors
Progress in Development Studies provides an international forum for the review of development-oriented work in the social, economic and environmental sciences. It publishes Review articles (5000-7000 words in length), Progress reports (2000 words) and Book reviews (500-1000 words) in the field of development studies and from time to time, short commentaries or observations (2000 words) as one-off pieces.
Review articles present overviews of the literature and thinking, or practice, pertaining to a particular subarea of development-related work. Although primarily presenting a synthesis or analytical review, the inclusion of empirically derived case study material is not ruled out, so long as it relates directly to, and has a bearing on, the field being considered. The express aim of Progress reports is to monitor what appear to be significant advances in theory and/or practice in a given subfield and to provide a reasoned appraisal of new approaches. Progress reports on a given topic will appear annually over a period of three years.
