  • I was invited to the Advisory Board of the Developing World Review on Trade and Competition in 2011 and submitted an article for publication. Although GNLU has my name on their website, several inquiries were left unanswered and I still do not know whether my article was published. Can somebody send me scans of the Table of Contents of the two issues of 2012? That would be much appreciated, I can't find the information anywhere online. My e-mail is [email protected]. Thank you in advance
