JOURNAL FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF DEVELOPING ECONOMIES (JADE)
- First, please review the Styling Guidelines below and edit your manuscript as necessary. After editing your manuscript, you should submit TWO copies, to facilitate our double-blind reviewing method. Submit one copy as you would like it to be published as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf file. Title your document with your manuscript's title. Make a second copy, but remove your name, any reference to your institutions or funding sources, and any acknowledgments. If you cite your previous work, use '(Anonymous, YEAR)' as the in-text citation, and in the reference section, please put "Anonymous. (DATE). Details omitted for Blinding." Title this document the same title as the first one, with "-BLIND" added to the end. Manuscript text should be double spaced and continuous line numbers inserted.
Please submit both versions of your manuscripts to JADE@developingeconomies.org
- Please use the APA Style for your manuscript preparation (See Purdue's Online Writing Lab for guidance on APA style). In particular, please be sure to use proper format for citations, references, tables, and figures. Additionally, please use American spelling conventions. A partial list of common differences can be found at Oxford Dictionaries. For further guidance, Microsoft Word also has the option to change the dialect in its Spell Checker.
Authors are encouraged to style their manuscripts using clearly defined and numbered sections as follows: TITLE, ABSTRACT, 1. INTRODUCTION, 2. LITERATURE REVIEW (optional), 3. METHOLOGY (or MATERIALS AND METHODS), 4. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION, and 5. CONCLUSIONS. Subsections should be numbered as 1.1, 1.2…or 2.1, 2.2…, etc. Depending on the nature, type, and scope of the work, authors can include other sections and/or use other appropriate headings in their manuscript. The title page should include the title, authors names and affiliations (indicating the corresponding author), and corresponding author’s e-mail address.
The Journal for the Advancement of Developing Economies publishes papers from authors around the world. We understand that English might not be the author' first language, and, where possible, will do our best to offer proofing and feedback to those who need it.
