Call For Papers
Development Engineering: The Journal of Engineering in Economic Development (Dev Eng) is an open access, interdisciplinary journal applying engineering and economic research to the problems of poverty. Published studies must present novel research motivated by a specific global development problem. The journal serves as a bridge between engineers, economists, and other scientists involved in research on human, social, and economic development.

Specific topics include:

• Engineering research in response to unique constraints imposed by poverty.
• Assessment of pro-poor technology solutions, including field performance, consumer adoption, and end-user impacts.
• Novel technologies or tools for measuring behavioral, economic, and social outcomes in low-resource settings.
• Hypothesis-generating research that explores technology markets and the role of innovation in economic development.
• Lessons from the field, especially null results from field trials and technical failure analyses.
• Rigorous analysis of existing development "solutions" through an engineering or economic lens.

Although the journal focuses on quantitative, scientific approaches, it is intended to be suitable for a wider audience of development practitioners and policy makers, with evidence that can be used to improve decision-making. It also will be useful for engineering and applied economics faculty who conduct research or teach in "technology for development."

The journal maintains high standards for publication, in terms of methodological rigor and contribution to the literature. It prioritizes novel, experimental work that directly integrates engineering research with statistically rigorous methods from the social sciences. The Editors will consider review articles that cover significant, emerging trends in engineering for global development. Published papers are expected to be applied in nature; however, they should generate fundamental knowledge that advances basic fields of science and engineering. Additionally, Dev Eng editors recognize that there is a lack of high-quality work from researchers in developing countries published in leading international journals. To encourage and facilitate submissions from authors in low to middle income countries, the journal will offer mentorship support to help authors overcome barriers such as language differences, writing skills and familiarity with the publishing process.

Author duties: Submission of a manuscript to the journal carries with it an understanding that the authors, when requested, will fulfil an obligation to contribute their expertise to the review of others manuscripts.
