The Development Journal

In 2006, the Celso Furtado Center launched its first periodical publication – the Development Journal -, in order to increase awareness of its academic activities, be they research, seminars, presentations or debates.

From the 9th edition onward, a new series was launched, now under the auspices of Professor Ricardo Ismael (Social Sciences, PUC-RJ), and its goals were two-fold: the magazine now published academic articles submitted to experts, and in parallel, included essays and original interviews, as well as a section containing documents related to the works of Celso Furtado.


Additionally, the magazine proposes that as from this edition onwards, it will produce an electronic version, in addition to a fully reformulated printed version that will continue to be sent to a wide selection of university libraries.
