    Your benefits of publishing with us
    • Easy-to-use online submission, peer review, and publication system
    • Quality rating: Authors no longer need to trade off submitting to a more prestigious journal at the cost of an increased chance of rejection. We simultaneously consider each article for four different tiers distinguished by breadth of appeal and overall quality
    • Authors & Reviewers’ Bank: Scholars enter a social contract to review other papers in a timely manner so their own papers are reviewed rapidly. Strong incentives for timely, quality reviews solve the free-rider problem
    • Top-caliber reviews: Reviewers who write especially insightful reviews will be invited by editors to publish them as comments. Reviewers can send questions to authors by anonymous email, so reviewers are less likely to misunderstand authors, and authors are more likely to avoid confused writing

    • Widely indexed: (among others) in EconLit, JEL, IBSS, RePEc, and Scopus. The full text is crawled and indexed by search engines like Google

    • After more than nine months since the submission I have not received any feedback on my paper. I sent three e mails to the journal with no answer. I thought the commitment was 10 weeks. Is there anyone to cantact?

    • Dear Editor, This regards my manuscript entitled, "Does R&D Expenditure Stimulate Economic Growth in China?" (Manuscript ID: DGBEJM.2014.0136). Although I submitted it more than six months ago, I have not heard of the editor's response. It would be my great pleasure if you let me know of that. Looking forward to hearing from you in due course. Sincerely, Jai S. Mah Ewha Womans University Seoul, South Korea e-mail: jsmah@ewha.ac.kr, jsmah59@yahoo.com
