Focus and Scope

The Brazilian Journal of Development (BJD), edited by the Instituto de Educação e Pós-Graduação em Negócios (IEN), arose with the perception of some Brazilian professors that the subject of development lacks the means of disseminating scientific research. It is a quarterly publication whose objective is to disseminate knowledge in the area of development through the publication of scientific articles that present original contributions, both empirical and theoretical.

The thematic coverage of the BJD, considering its essence, covers all areas of knowledge described by CNPq, provided the research presents a contribution to development.

The BJD accepts contributions written in Portuguese, English or Spanish.
