    Special Issue on Industrial Policy


    The industrial policy of a country, sometimes denoted IP, is its official strategic effort to encourage the development and growth of part or all of the manufacturing sector as well as other sectors of the economy. The government takes measures "aimed at improving the competitiveness and capabilities of domestic firms and promoting structural transformation." A country's infrastructure (transportation, telecommunications and energy industry) is a major part of the manufacturing sector that often has a key role in IP.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on industrial policy. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Structural transformation and competitiveness
    • Manufacturing promoting policy
    • Government’s policy
    • Fiscal policy
    • Macroeconomic policies
    • Sector-specific policies
    • Import-export policy
    • Infrastructure financing policies
    • Policies against crisis
    • Policy incentives and innovations
    • Market failures and government inefficiency

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Industrial Policy” should be chosen during your submission.
