Scope/Description:

Forum for Development Studies was established in 1974 and soon became the leading Norwegian journal for development research. While this position has been consolidated Forum has gradually become an international journal with its main constituency in the Nordic countries. The journal is owned by the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs NUPI and the Norwegian Association for Development Research.Forum aims to be a platform for development research broadly definedincluding the social sciences economics history and law. All articles are doubleblind peerreviewed. In order to maintain the journal as a meeting place for different disciplines we encourage authors to communicate across disciplinary boundaries. Contributions that limit the use of exclusive terminology and frame the questions explored in ways that are accessible to the whole range of the Journals readership will be given priority.

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?
