As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
Featured article: 'Internet and the structure of public revenue: resource revenue versus non-resource revenue'
This paper, by Sèna Kimm Gnangnon and Jean-François Brun, examines whether the Internet has led to a shift from reliance on resource revenue towards progressive reliance on non-resource revenue, which is ultimately a sustainable source of public revenue. The analysis has been carried out using a sample of 99 countries, including both developed and developing countries, over 1995–2015.
Empirical results obtained from the use of the two-step system GMM approach suggest that the Internet induces a change in the structure of public revenue, in particular from resource revenue towards non-resource revenue.
