Editorial Statement

The Competitiveness Review aims to be the leading platform for academic research and conceptual policy dialogue on the competitiveness of locations.

Competitiveness, understood as the set of factors, institutions and activities that enable a location to sustain a high level of prosperity and companies located there to compete successfully, requires an inclusive, cross-discipline perspective. Accordingly, the Competitiveness Review invites contributions from a wide range of disciplines and methodologies.

The Competitiveness Review has a global focus, covering locations at all stages of economic development.  


The following list indicates the key issues in the Competitiveness Review. We invite papers on these and related topics. Special issues of the Review will collect papers on specific topics selected by the editors.

  • Definition/conceptual framework of competitiveness
  • Competitiveness diagnostics and rankings
  • Competitiveness and economic outcomes
  • Specific dimensions of competitiveness
  • Competitiveness and endowments
  • Competitiveness and economic development
  • Location and business strategy
  • International business and the role of MNCs
  • Innovation and innovative capacity
  • Clusters and cluster initiatives
  • Institutions for competitiveness
  • Public policy (e.g., innovation, cluster development, regional development)

The Competitiveness Review aims to publish high quality papers directed at scholars, government institutions, businesses and practitioners. It appears in collaboration with key academic and professional groups in the field of competitiveness analysis and policy, including the Microeconomics of Competitiveness (MOC) network and The Competitiveness Institute (TCI) practitioner network for competitiveness, clusters and innovation.
