Report of the Editor-in-Chief



The year 2010 saw a substantial increase in submissions to the Journal, which show an increasingly international pattern, though with no corresponding increase in accepted papers. Response times continue to meet our target of four months, with fewer regrettable lapses, though with some increase in mean time to decision from 2009. The JAE’s citation impact factor has slipped a little to 1.15 in 2009, though we retain second place in the peer group ranking. Wiley-Blackwell continues to provide a strong publishing platform with the full archive of JAE papers now on line.
