Guidelines for content of research papers

General Requirements

The Journal of New Economy only accepts research papers that are in compliance with the journal’s remit (economic growth and development) and the present guidelines for their content and structure. Authors’ theoretical propositions should be verified in practice, as well as supported by accurate primary and secondary data.

The decision about incompliance with the journal’s remit and the present guidelines may be taken by the journal’s Editorial office on the basis of the preliminary review.


Types of Papers

Empirical study is a research paper that presents its results in accordance with the IMRAD structure (Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion). Original research articles are typically structured in the following basic order: 1) introduction (problem statement, the relevance of the topic under study, the purpose and objectives of the article, research hypotheses); 2) a brief theoretical overview with conclusions about the research topic; 3) research methods (the authors’ methodology in relation to the existing ones); 4) research results in the form of calculations based on the developed methodology; 5) interpretation of the findings (specifying what research results imply in the context of the previous studies, the findings of other authors, as well as confirmation or refutation of hypotheses); 6) conclusion (a generalization of results that should not copy previous sections).

Review article is a paper based on an in-depth analysis of research literature and devoted to studying a particular concept / group of concepts, phenomenon or scientific theory. The key requirements to this type of papers are the description of the review methodology, analysis of an extensive array of research publications (geographical diversity and heterogeneity of references are obligatory), and a clear outlining of its boundaries. The novelty of such articles lies in the systematization of concepts, the authors’ interpretation of the phenomenon under consideration, summarizing the existing research developments, and identification of the promising avenues in the studied field.

Methodology of economic research is an article where the author proposes a new approach to examining economic categories and processes. Such papers are expected to inquire into a vast number of theoretical approaches to analyzing the object of research and views on the scientific problem followed by the development and justification of the author's approach.

Theoretical study is an article that predominantly applies an abstract-logical method to analyze how changes in legislation or government policy influence the activities of certain companies and (or) industries, the development of regions, and the national economy. Among major requirements to such articles are a theoretical review on the problem under study and analysis of a significant amount of panel economic and statistical data. The novelty of theoretical studies is due to the introduction of new scientific knowledge regarding the patterns observed in the economy and the functioning of the real sector of the economy.

Irrespective of its type, the article should include Introduction (problem statement, the relevance of the topic under study, the purpose and objectives of the article, research hypotheses) and Conclusion (the prospects for practical application of the findings, their theoretical and practical significance, area of application, possible avenues for further research in the studied area).


The authors are kindly asked to take the following into account:

The author is responsible for reliability of information, accuracy of citation and references to official documents and other sources.

The published manuscripts should comply with the following:


  • to clearly state the purpose and objectives of the research (in Introduction) and its novelty;
  • to accurately establish the context for proposed approaches and hypotheses by providing a brief and balanced review of the pertinent published literature that is available on the subject (main section of the paper);
  • to provide an extensive list of references on the subject (main section of the paper);
  • to address a wide array of research literature, predominantly scientific papers published in peer-reviewed scholarly journals (international and national, classical and modern).
