International Journal for Regional Development


Focus and Scope

International Journal for Regional Development (IJRD) is a scientific, academic review covering all fields of policies, administration and management of regional affairs, including, but not limited to, business ethics, business strategy, entrepreneurship, innovation, international projects, cross-cultural studies, as well as supply chain and operations management.

The IJRD aims to present the latest thinking and research on major regional development topics in the form of articles that meet high academic quality standards, while still being accessible to non-specialists. Interdisciplinary research and cross-functional issues are particularly favoured. The IJRD encourages submissions from other disciplines if they contribute significantly to problems considered by managers and researchers in the field of regional development.
