Review of Politics and Public Policy in Emerging Economies
SCOPE AND MISSION
ROPE seeks to publish manuscripts that break new ground and makes an original contribution to the existing public policy, governance and strategic studies. Manuscripts should address policy impacting developments, phenomena and issues with a distinct standpoint. ROPE is particularly interested in publishing innovative policy research papers bearing a multi-disciplinary approach. Manuscripts should provide a brief overview or literature review of existing perspectives but often challenging the traditional mainstream views, wherever possible.
Submissions that qualify as having substantial political and strategic affairs content will be potentially suitable for ROPE, where at least one of the sub-domains listed above is a primary focus of attention within the main line of argument being developed in the paper. ROPE is a methodologically pluralistic journal. Both the Quantitative and Qualitative research methodologies are encouraged, as long as the studies are rigorously researched. Conceptual and theory-development empirical hypothesis-testing papers and case-based studies are welcome.
