 Technology and Development Studies

The International Journal of Technology and Development Studies, published between 2010 and 2012, was a peer-reviewed and open access journal. The journal established a forum for serious debate and exchange on technology and development studies. It gave a voice to both established and younger researchers and analysts from academic as well as practitioner backgrounds. The International Journal of Technology and Development Studies aimed to maintain a fair balance between theoretical analyses and emperical studies both of comparative as well as singular nature. The journal was the continuation of Tailoring Biotechnologies, which was published between 2005 and 2008.
