Special Issue: Economics, Territories and Governance: from modelling to regional development policy

In Memoriam: Pedro Ramos

Special Issue context

Pedro Nogueira Ramos, Full Professor at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Coimbra and one of the most prominent members of the Portuguese Association for Regional Development (APDR), physically left us in 2021. For a decade, he held the position of Director of the Portuguese Journal of Regional Studies (RPER), contributing to its affirmation at national and international level. As a Professor, but also as Director of National Accounts at Statistics Portugal (INE) or member of the Portuguese Economic and Social Council, his works and reflexions, that looked at the economy from the perspective of the territory, are abundant, combining economic analysis methods with the study of geography and demography. Pedro Ramos has always assumed himself as a true apologist and supporter of regional science, so it is of elementary justice and of the greatest scientific relevance to pay homage to his work and legacy.

Subject coverage

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers that fit into the scope of RPER, with a particular focus on the themes that deserved the main scientific attention of Pedro Ramos in this field, including, but not limited to:

  • Regional economics;
  • Interregional trade;
  • Territorial development;
  • Regional cohesion;
  • Regional policy;
  • Spatial modelling (regional input-output models, spatial econometrics, among others).

  • All papers are refereed through a peer review process.
  • All papers must be submitted online. To submit a paper, please read our Submitting a paper page.
