IJEED primarily publishes papers promoting advancement of education economics at all levels. It fills the gap in our understanding of the links between education and the development of individuals, societies and economies. IJEED is particularly interested in international comparisons and detailed studies of educational institutions and outcomes in developing economies. The latter is what distinguishes the journal from other journals whose focus is education economics more generally. Theoretical and empirical analyses at both micro and macro levels receive equal attention.


 Topics covered include

  • Formal and informal education/training; role of voluntary organisations
  • Economic education and teaching of economics
  • Higher education: responsiveness to demands of society
  • Supply of education; education quality, measurement and issues
  • Teacher/instructor training and quality; dealing with bullying at schools
  • Access to education; education costs; public vs. private financing
  • Private school/higher education: private entrepreneurship's role
  • Enrolment/drop-out rates, completion rates, and gender imbalance
  • Returns to education and labour market outcomes
  • Apprenticeships, training, skills upgrading; implementation, outcomes
  • Regional, rural/urban, and ethnic disparities in provision of education
  • Incentives, education delivery and outcomes
  • Education, health and happiness
  • International flows of human capital and brain drain
  • Any other relevant topic
