Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word format to Full-length manuscripts should be approximately 25 double-spaced pages, although longer manuscripts will not be excluded from consideration. Every manuscript should include a title page with the names, institutional affiliations, addresses, email addresses, and telephone and fax numbers of the authors. All manuscripts must include an abstract of 100-150 words on a separate sheet of paper and a short (40 words or fewer) biographical statement including affiliation, research interests, and/or recent publications.  All copy should follow APA style (see Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed.), with notes and references at the end of the article.  Tables and figures should also appear on separate pages at the end of the article. All color charts should also be reproducible in grayscale for printing in the journal.

All articles are peer reviewed. The editors assume that manuscripts are for the exclusive consideration of EDQ and have not been submitted elsewhere, nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content. Authors in doubt about what constitutes prior publication should consult the editor. Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal.

As part of the submission process you will be asked to provide the names of peers who could be called upon to review your manuscript. Recommended reviewers should be experts in their fields and should be able to provide an objective assessment of the manuscript. Please be aware of any conflicts of interest when recommending reviewers. Examples of conflicts of interest include (but are not limited to) the below:

· The reviewer should have no prior knowledge of your submission

· The reviewer should not have recently collaborated with any of the authors

· Reviewer nominees from the same institution as any of the authors are not permitted

Please note that the Editors are not obliged to invite any recommended/opposed reviewers to assess your manuscript.

In addition to traditional full-length Research and Practice articles, EDQ features Research Notes, Commentary, Forum, Review Essays, and Book Reviews. Research Note submission requirements are the same as for full-length papers, but they should be limited to 10-15 pages in length, not including tables and references. Commentaries are opinion pieces, whereas the Forum provides readers with the opportunity to comment on articles published in previous issues of EDQ. Review Essays survey the literature on a certain topic, and Book Reviews give our readers exposure to recent books and reports in the economic development field along with a critique by an informed reader. Publishers and authors of recent economic development books, as well as individuals interested in serving as reviewers, should contact Neil Reid, Book Review Editor, at
