Call for the Special Issue on Economic Policy in Portugal: Competition, Innovation, and Competitiveness and Internationalisation
Authors should take into account that their contribution has to be relevant and centred on the Portuguese economy, although it may also cover other countries. At least one of the above-mentioned fields has to be addressed in the article, even if explored together with other fields. Problem diagnosis and policy implications and/or recommendations are very welcome. Submissions will be assessed under the usual reviewing process at PEJ. Please refer to the Springer site of the journal for specific instructions and online submission – choose “special issue” for the type of article.
Deadline for submissions
Submissions to this special issue are welcome from 16 to 30 September 2017. The special issue will be published in the second half of 2018.
Special issue editors
- Alves, Ricardo P. (GEE and IADE of U. Europeia)
- Costa, Luís F. (ISEG of ULisboa)
- Hoernig, Steffen (NOVA SBE)
Prizes and dissemination
Papers accepted for publication will be awarded a Eur. 3,000 prize* sponsored by Gabinete de Estratégia e Estudos (GEE) of the Portuguese Ministry of Economy. The special issue shall consist of three to five papers. In case only one or two papers are accepted, they will be published in a regular issue and the corresponding prizes will be awarded nonetheless. Furthermore, preliminary versions of accepted papers will be disseminated as working papers of GEE on its website. A special session will be organised for these papers at the 12th Annual Meeting of PEJ to be held in Lisbon in July 2018.
GEE parallel calls
GEE is also organising three parallel calls for paper, one for each field included here, where manuscripts will be prized and disseminated on its website. Authors submitting to the special issue of PEJ are welcome to submit also for GEE’s calls. However, there will be only one prize (special issue or GEE paper) for each manuscript. For further details, please refer to the GEE website.
