Markets working to support sustainable development

Get involved

Publish your research

Shaping Sustainable Markets aims to publish independent, rigorous research that makes a meaningful contribution to what we already know.  

We aim to be the leading resource on the use and impact of market governance mechanisms, providing recommendations on how to improve their design and implementation. Ultimately we want to ensure that market governance mechanisms better contribute to sustainable development.

We publish research carried out by researchers within IIED, as well as research carried out by external experts.

We welcome contributions from external researchers – particularly those from low- and middle-income nations – that meet our editorial and quality standards. We offer support for producing and marketing publications (including coordinating a rigorous peer review process) but are unlikely to be able to offer financial support for research to be carried out.

For more information on our editorial guidelines/standards and how to submit research, see Submitting your research.
