Summary
The European Journal of Development Research (EJDR) is now seeking proposals for a special issue on the theme of Artificial Intelligence in International Development. Submission deadline is 30 September.

This Special Issue call welcomes proposals of a coherent set of empirical, conceptual, and/or theoretical papers that explore these and/or other facets of artificial intelligence and related technologies in international development. While a single disciplinary focus across papers is acceptable, we strongly encourage proposals that include studies with a diversity of academic approaches such as from economics, political economy, political science, sociology, and other fields.

The proposal should include:
(a) the proposed guest-editors’ names and affiliations
(b) a concept note that provides a motivation and conceptual framework and that integrates the proposed papers’ findings and insights
(c) abstracts of each paper (200-500 words per abstract) that includes the title, authors, authors’ affiliation, and that summarises the paper’s main research question(s), methodology, findings, and broader implications
(d) a proposed timeline in the development and submission of the papers, possible workshop, etc. The proposal should be assembled in one single document (Word or pdf).

While EJDR strongly favours complete proposals with a set of abstracts, we also welcome individual paper submissions on this Special Issue theme. EJDR also encourages the submission of individual papers relating to the theme of Artificial Intelligence in International Development, outside the corpus of a special issue.

The submission deadline both for proposals with a set of abstracts and for individual papers is 30. September 2019. Please email proposals with a set of abstracts to EJDR’s Managing Editor, Natalia Lorenzoni, at [email protected].

For any inquiries, please email [email protected].
