Development Engineering – a new open access journal

Development Engineering (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.

A priority of this journal is to encourage and promote high-quality research conducted by scholars from developing countries. To this end, we have designed a unique co-mentorship program for lead authors from low- and middle-income countries, to strengthen manuscripts and increase publication rates.
