Call for Papers - Economic Policy in Portugal

Date limite de soumission : 30 septembre 2017

Following the Great Recession and its aftershocks, it is clear that long-run structural deficiencies would make life uncomfortable for less-productive countries participating in international markets. Short-run macroeconomic imbalances may be corrected with temporary, but painful adjustment measures, but they will be recurrent – as a chronic disease – if growth convergence is not resumed. This is not an easy task in a globalised world where a small open economy such as Portugal aims to implement economic policies to enhance productivity and improve the competitiveness of its firms, so that economic growth is accelerated and population’s welfare is raised. This is why long-run microeconomic growth factors are so important. This is true for a small open economy like Portugal, but there are lessons that can be learned and adapted to any other geography. This special issue of PEJ aims at gathering innovative empirical, theoretical, and especially policy-oriented research on the Portuguese economy in three fields: (i) competition, (ii) innovation, and (iii) competitiveness and internationalisation.

Submission Guidelines
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.
