Special Issues

The Globelics Secretariat has developed two journal special issues with selected important Globelics themes and papers.


African Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development

Special Issue: Innovation Research and Economic Development in Africa

In many African countries the demand for skills is weak especially in the private sector, and the weak demand reflects in low rates of innovation (Diyamett and Musambya 2014). This situation requires governments’ intervention in terms of policies, which in turn requires a better understanding of how the capacity to innovate can be stimulated. This special issue brings together a number of articles that seek ultimately to contribute to this understanding.

Special issue of the African Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development, Volume 6, Issue 5, 2014. Special Issue: Innovation Research and Economic Development in Africa.

Rasmus Lema has compiled the special issue. Bengt-Åke Lundvall and Rasmus Lema from the Globelics secretariat have contributed to the issue with the following articles:

Adebowale, B., Diyamett, B., Lema, R., & Oyelaran-Oyeyinka, B. (2014). Innovation research and economic development in AfricaAfrican Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development6(5), v-xi.

Lundvall, B-Å., & Lema, R. (2014). Growth and structural change in Africa: development strategies for the learning economyAfrican Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development,6(5), 455-466.

Innovation and Development Special Issue Open Access

Special Issue: Low Carbon Innovation and Development

It is increasingly accepted that mitigation in developing countries needs to be combined with economic and social development. Many developing countries have a wealth of renewable energy sources such as sun, wind, geothermal, and hydropower that present new horizons of opportunity for social and economic development while being used to forster energy. The ‘innovation and development’ research community has been influential in this debate about synergies between climate change and broader policy goals.

Special issue of Routledges Innovation and Development, Volume 5, Issue 2, 2015. Special Issue: Low Carbon Innovation and Development.

Available, with open access here

Rasmus Lema has lead the process of compiling the special issue. Edited by Rasmus Lema in colaboration with Michiko Iizuka (UNU-Merit) and Rainer Walz (Fraunhofer). Rasmus Lema, Allan Dahl Andersen and Björn Johnson from the Globelics Secretariat have contributed to the issue with the following articles:
