RSPP Call for Papers | Special Issue on Regional and urban economic modeling

Call for papers for RSPP Special Issue on

“Regional and urban economic modeling”

The aim of  Regional Science Policy & Practice - RSPP is to promote and diffuse the understanding of human interaction in space; based on sound, rigorous and up-to-date methodologies; and focusing on real and urgent issues for peoples and places, that require adequate policy responses.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been attracting the focus of both economists and policy makers in the last few years. This resulted in a huge number of papers related to different aspects of Covid-19 and its socio-economic impacts. Yet, recent months have brought new challenges that may influence local and regional economies. The Russian aggression in Ukraine not only led to energy and food crisis worldwide but also caused a significant increase in prices. This in turn may result in global economic slowdown that is likely to increase existing regional inequalities. 

This call aims to mobilize publications that model the state of local and regional inequalities, analyse regional development strategies and possible policy responses to the challenges that are likely to appear in the next few years. We kindly invite contribution on topics related (but not limited) to:

  • The impact of Covid19 on regional economic growth and development
  • Spatial inequalities
  • Infrastructure, transport flows and networks among regions
  • Regional Input-Output (IO) and Computable General Equilibrium models (CGE)
  • Tourism and regional development
  • Migration and regional labor markets
  • Innovation policies
  • Spatial externalities and their role in regional development
  • Competition and cooperation at local and regional level

We welcome original, unpublished papers that address the above questions, or any other research questions not mentioned, as they relate to the regional and urban economic modelling. We look forward to papers from all parts of the world.

Submission Guidelines: Interested Authors should submit their paper to the Special Issue “Regional and urban economic modeling” until February 28, 2023 to Early submissions are encouraged and will be processed immediately. Papers will undergo the normal refereeing process. The papers will be publish once accepted and compiled when there are enough papers to be compiled in a special issue.
