Journal of Infrastructure, Policy and Development

The Journal of Infrastructure, Policy and Development (JIPD) is a multi-disciplinary, double-blind peer-reviewed journal dedicated to publishing high-quality articles on infrastructure, economic development, and public policy. The three words in the journal’s title, "infrastructure", "development" and "policy" are core to the vision of this journal.

With its broad scope covering development-related issues, a novel feature of this journal is that it covers the whole range of infrastructure, including both "hard" infrastructure and "soft" infrastructure, where soft infrastructure is broadly defined to include education system, healthcare system, law enforcement, financial system, government system and other types of institutional arrangements.

JIPD has a target audience consisting of academic researchers, industry professional practitioners, and regulatory institution policymakers. It aims to provide a reliable platform for the transfer of knowledge and to facilitate discussions in the areas of development-related policy initiatives and infrastructure.

Relevant (but not limited to) topics to JIPD:

  • Education system
  • Healthcare system
  • Social system
  • Innovation of policy
  • Institutional reform
  • Physical infrastructure
  • Urban development
  • Green development
  • Climate-resilient infrastructure
  • Sustainable infrastructure
  • Infrastructure finance
  • Infrastructure governance
