Editorial Welcome Message
Dear Reader,
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to our new publication - Journal of Development Studies (JDS).
JDS invites articles that are interdisciplinary or focused on particular disciplines and discusses topical issues from the perspective of development studies. The works may be theoretical, empirical, or methodological in focus. The surveys of the literature in important fields of development policy are also welcomed. 
The journal aims to provide wide space for the creation of new knowledge and scientific discussion among the international community. We believe in the power of scientific research to find out innovative approaches in overcoming the contemporary challenges, to unlock potential for new opportunities in the development that will be addressed to strengthen the well-being of the world.
We are extremely glad that you have joined us as readers. We are open to academic cooperation and hope you will be interested in contributing to the journal as an author and/or reviewer with your high level of thinking.
