Journal of Development Effectiveness

The Journal of Development Effectiveness publishes papers reporting evidence of impact of development interventions.

The journal does not subscribe to any one approach to impact evaluation, but requires that the techniques employed be rigorously applied, with a preference for studies which have been well contextualized with an appropriate use of mixed methods.

It also publishes papers of a more conceptual nature related to impact evaluation, as well as papers covering practical aspects of conducting impact studies.

JDEff has an explicit policy of ‘learning from our mistakes’, discouraging publication bias in favor of positive results – papers reporting interventions with no, or a negative, impact are welcome. A listing of new impact studies will be included in each issue.
