Thank you for choosing to submit your manuscript to Journal of Economics and Development (JED), National Economics University of Vietnam. These instructions are issued for ensuring that your manuscript can move through peer review, production and publication smoothly. Please take the time to read and follow as closely as possible, as doing so will ensure your manuscript matches the journal’s requirements.
JED considers all manuscripts on the condition that:
The manuscript is your own original work, and does not duplicate any other previously issued work, including your own previously issued work.
- The manuscript has been submitted only to JED, not been submitted to other journal for simultaneous consideration.
- The manuscript does not contain plagiarism. In case of using in-text citations, please cite the sources.
Auhtor(s) should perform a final check of your submission before sending it to JED for review.
JED operates in a mechanism of a double-blind review process. All contributions will be initially assessed by the editor for suitability for the journal. Manuscripts deemed suitable are then typically sent to reviewers for evaluating the scientific quality of the manuscript. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of manuscripts. The Editor's decision is final.
There is no submission fee for JED. There are no page charges for JED. JED is free assessment journal for all published manuscripts. JED is open access for all readers over the world.
Copyright: It is a condition of publication that authors agree to transfer the copyright of the manuscript, including abstract to JED. The transfer will ensure the widest possible dissemination of information, including, but not limited to, print and electronic modes of dissemination. Authors must declare any sponsorship or financial ties that may cause conflicts of interests.
Manuscripts must be in English and should be written using MsWord, with New Times Roman font, type size 12 with 1.5 line spacing. The length should have a minimum of 5,000 words and not exceed 12,000 words (inclusive of tables, figures, notes, references and appendices).
JED uses double-blind peer review, which means the identities of the authors are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa. To facilitate this, the manuscript must be in two separate documents:
- Title page (with author details): This should include the title, authors' names with affiliations (department, university, country) in order that the author(s) would them to appear in the issued paper, acknowledgements and any Declaration of Interest statement, and a complete address for the corresponding author including an e-mail address.
- Blinded manuscript (no author details): The main body of the manuscript (including the references, figures, tables and any acknowledgements) should not include any identifying information, such as the authors' names or affiliations.
Manuscripts should be compiled in the following order: title; abstract; keywords; main text; acknowledgements; references; appendices (as appropriate); table(s) with caption(s) (on individual pages); figure caption(s) (as a list).
- The title of the manuscripts should be bold and centred. Section heading should be bold, left justified and numbered sequentially in Arabic numerals. First level heading (e.g 2.1) should be in italics and bold, and the second level subheading (e.g 2.1.1) should be in italics and not bold. All pages should be numbered consecutively.
- Abstract of 100-200 words are required for all manuscripts submitted.
- Keywords: provide maximum six keywords in alphabetical order to help readers find your manuscript.
- JEL codes for the manuscript are required.
- Main text: There are no strict formatting requirements for main text, but all manuscripts must contain the essential elements in main text needed to convey your manuscript including Introduction; Literature review/Theoretical framework; Methodology; Results and discussions; Conclusions.
- Tables and figures should be numbered separately and sequentially using Arabic numerals. Each table and figure should be given an informative title. Figures must be of high quality, of a good resolution and sharpness.
- Footnotes: Footnotes should be used sparingly. Number them consecutively throughout the manuscript. Many word processors build footnotes into the text, and this feature may be used. Should this not be the case, indicate the position of footnotes in the text and present the footnotes themselves separately at the end of the manuscript.
Refences: Citations in the text should use the Harvard system of short references (e.g Dunning, 2000, p.2; Smith, 2005a, 2005b). Bibliographical list containing all the works referred to, in alphabetical order. For example:
Daly, J (2004), Theory A
, Elsevier, Sydney.
Edwards, H (2003), 'Export orientation in Southeast Asia', Journal of Asian Economics
, 42(6), 68-72.
