Economic development—jobs, income, and community prosperity—is a continuing challenge to modern society. To meet this challenge, economic developers must use imagination and common sense, coupled with the tools of public and private finance, politics, planning, micro- and macroeconomics, engineering, and real estate. In short, the art of economic development must be supported by the science of research. And only one journal—Economic Development Quarterly: The Journal of American Economic Revitalization (EDQ)—effectively bridges the gap between academics, policymakers, and practitioners and links the various economic development communities.

The journal is basically geared to North American economic development and revitalization. However, international perspective is welcome and encouraged. EDQ will consider studies of economic development in other countries if the article makes clear its relevance to the U.S. context. Relevance to the U.S. context is not established by adding on a short section at the end; it must be integral to the article.

Comprehensive Approach
Featuring timely, relevant, and practical essays, EDQ presents today’s most pivotal issues and details the programs and policies affecting development at every level. Regular areas of study include

  • Economic Development Policy & Practice
  • Labor Economics & Workforce Development Policy
  • Economic Development Finance & Incentives
  • Urban & Regional Economics
  • Economic Development Theory
  • Location Theory
  • Methodology
  • Globalization & Foreign Trade
  • Industry Studies
  • Institutional Roles: Economic, Political, Legal, Social
  • New Growth Theory
  • Quality of Life
  • Sustainable Development
  • Community Development

Extensive Coverage
EDQ presents research and opinion in an articulate and readable manner. Each issue of the journal offers up to six sections to provide extensive coverage of American economic issues:

  • Research and Practice
  • Research Notes
  • Commentary
  • Forum
  • Review Essays
  • Book Reviews

 This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
