IZA Journal of Labor & Development is published in cooperation with the IZA - Institute for the Study of Labor, which is also owner of the whole IZA journal series.
"The intersection of labor economics and development economics is one of the most exciting and important areas of current economic research. The IZA Journal of Labor & Development is a forum for a wide range of innovative theoretical and empirical research linking labor and development. It will in the medium term strive to become the main world-wide interlocutory platform for researchers who work on labor market issues in developing, emerging and transition countries."
David Lam and Hartmut Lehmann
Aims & scope
The IZA Journal of Labor & Development covers all aspects of economic development related to issues of human behavior and/or the labor market of developing, emerging or transition countries, including both policy issues and more structural problems.
In particular, the IZA Journal of Labor & Development encourages submissions in subject areas that cover all fields of labor economics in a development context. We welcome original high quality papers, both empirical and theoretical, that deal with issues related to labor and/or labor markets in developing, emerging and transition economies.
The IZA Journal of Labor & Development belongs to the family of field journals in the IZA Journal Series with Springer, also including: (i) the IZA Journal of Labor Economics, (ii) the IZA Journal of Labor Policy, (iii) the IZA Journal of European Labor Studies, and (iv) the IZA Journal of Migration. Each journal publishes 24 articles per year, where each article should be about 10,000 words (including tables, figures and references).
Gary Fields, Cornell Professor and IZAJOLD Associate Editor, has received the IZA Prize in Labor Economics 2014. The prize is awarded for his outstanding contribution on the importance of efficient labor markets to fight poverty and foster economic development in low- and middle-income countries.
