The Journal of Development Studies
We present a comprehensive multi-scale test of the diversity-deficit hypothesis that posits a negative association between diversity and development. We develop a ‘scale-flip hypothesis’ that formalises how the political salience of diversity is contingent on the level of analysis. We also contribute to the political economy of public goods literature using the largest dataset used to date – n ≈ 1.2 million village-year points from a two-period panel of all villages in the Indian national census data. We find evidence for ‘scale-flip’ so that there is a robust positive association between diversity and public goods at the local level.

Journal of Emerging Market Finance

IFMR GSB has been publishing Journal of Emerging Market Finance, one of the very few ABDC-B category journals in the country, since 2002. This journal is a forum for debate and discussion on the theory and practice of finance in emerging markets. While the emphasis is on articles that are of practical significance, the journal also covers theoretical and conceptual aspects relating to emerging financial markets. Following a double-blind peer-review process, the journal is equally useful to practitioners and to banking and investment companies as to scholars. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). 

JEMF (eISSN: 0973-0710 | ISSN: 0972-6527) is published thrice a year in collaboration with SAGE Publication
