Special Issue "Innovation and Economic Development"
A special issue of Economies (ISSN 2227-7099).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 January 2018)
This Special Issue presents a collection of papers that contribute to one of the most important contemporary economic questions, i.e., innovation and its impact on economic development. Although substantial attention has been paid to the economic mechanism of innovation and its effects on economic growth, many unexplored issued remain regarding the relationship between innovation and economic development or economic growth with structural change. The papers can be theoretical or empirical, and the approach can be based on case studies, comparative or institutional analysis, theoretical contributions, historical perspective or empirical work, among others. Papers from different schools of thought may also be accepted.
