Helping Early Career Researchers in Vietnam and Thailand to develop their capability to publish in high-impact journals in Development Economics

Project status


By organising three rounds of workshops in Vietnam and Thailand and one international conference, this proposal aims to train Early Career Researchers (ECRs) in these countries to have the capacity to plan a research project, apply for a research grant, write a paper, present it at the international conference and publish papers in high-impact international journals in development economics. The project draws upon the lead/co-applicants' long experience as editors of Review of Development Economics (RDE), one of the top field journals. As ECRs in low- and middle-income countries find it hard to publish their papers in RDE due to the high desk rejection rate, the editorial board is keen to publish more papers they authored. The workshops would not only train the capacity of ECRs in Vietnam and Thailand but also create a network whereby they will develop a community to further develop and transfer publishing skills to other ECRs.
