Development Engineering (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/development-engineering) is an open access, interdisciplinary journal that applies engineering and economic research to the problems of poverty. Published by Elsevier, the journal will showcase research on innovative technologies designed to improve welfare in developing countries, along with novel measurement tools that are improving the quality and relevance of empirical data. The journal is intended to encourage collaboration and learning between engineering and the quantitative social sciences with a key priority to promote high-quality research conducted by scholars from developing countries. To this end, we have created a unique co-mentorship program (http://tinyurl.com/DevEngCoMentor) and encourage submissions from developing country authors.
Development Engineering is open for submissions and will accept manuscripts on a rolling basis: http://tinyurl.com/DevEngSubmit. The first issue is expected to go live in Fall 2015.
Dev Eng is funded in part by UC Berkeley's Development Impact Lab through the US Global Development Lab's Higher Education Solutions Network (HESN).
