Author Guidelines


1. Initial manuscript submission. Electronic submissions of articles should be made online at http://editorialexpress.com/jae. The paper must be submitted as an Adobe PDF file. Make sure all necessary fonts are embedded in the PDF file. Information on how to do this is available from https://editorialexpress.com/e-editor/pdftips.html.

Submission of a manuscript will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not under review elsewhere at the same time. Submitted material will not be returned to the author unless specifically requested when the manuscript is originally submitted.

2. Manuscript style. The language of the journal is English. All submissions must have a title, be printed on one side of the paper, be double-line spaced and have a margin of 3 cm all round. Illustrations and tables must be printed on separate sheets, and not be incorporated into the text.

  • The title page must list the full title, and names and affiliations of all authors. Give the full address, including email, telephone and fax, of the corresponding author.

  • Include the name(s) of any sponsor(s) of the research contained in the paper, along with grant number(s).

  • Supply a summary of up to 100 words. A summary is a condensation of the whole paper, not just the conclusions, and is understandable without reference to the rest of the paper. It should contain no citation to other published work. Please also include up to six keywords that describe your paper for indexing purposes.

Ordinarily we do not expect submitted papers to exceed 50 pages, but when preparing their paper for submission, authors should be aware that we rarely accept papers for publication that exceed 35 printed pages in length. (However, we do allow the publication of necessary supplementary material and/or appendices in online-only form, which will be linked to the published paper and accessed online. There is no restriction to the length of online material.) The paper should be divided reasonably into sections and, if necessary, into subsections. Mathematical symbols should be typewritten, and if Greek symbols cannot be typewritten then they should be identified separately in the margin. All equations should be numbered consecutively, and the numbers should be placed in parentheses in the right hand margin. Tables should be numbered consecutively and titled. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. Tables should not repeat data which are available elsewhere in the paper, e.g. in a line diagram.

3. Reference style. References should be quoted in the text as name and year within brackets and listed at the end of the paper alphabetically. Where reference is made to more than one work by the same author published in the same year, identify each citation in the text as follows: (Collins, 1998a, Collins, 1998b). Where three or more authors are listed in the reference list, please cite in the text as (Collins et al., 1998)

All references must be complete and accurate. Where possible the DOI for the reference should be included at the end of the reference. Online citations should include date of access. If necessary, cite unpublished or personal work in the text but do not include it in the reference list. References should be listed in the following style:

  • Lee T, White H, Granger C. 1993. Testing for neglected nonlinearity in time series models. Journal of Econometrics 56: 269-290. DOI: 10.1016/0304-4076(93)90122-L

  • Brock W, Hsieh D, LeBaron B. 1991. Nonlinear Dynamics, Chaos, and Instability: Statistical Theory and Economic Evidence. MIT: Cambridge, MA.

  • Hansen BE. 1993. The likelihood ratio test under non-standard conditions: testing the Markov switching model of GNP. In Nonlinear Dynamics, Chaos and Econometrics, Pesaran MH, Potter SM (eds). Wiley: Chichester.


4. Illustrations. Supply each illustration on a separate sheet, with the lead author's name and the figure number, with the top of the figure indicated, on the reverse. Line artwork must be high-quality laser output (not photocopies). Tints are not acceptable; lettering must be of a reasonable size that would still be clearly legible upon reduction, and consistent within each figure and set of figures. The artwork must be sized to the text width of 190mm × 140mm.

Colour graphs, supplied electronically in TIFF or EPS format, may be used in the PDF of the article at no cost to the author, even if this illustration was printed in black and white in the journal. The PDF will appear on the Wiley Online Library site. The cost for colour illustrations is £150 for the first figure and £50 for each figure thereafter.

5. Accepted manuscripts.

a. Provision of final accepted manuscript. Authors must supply the JAE Editorial Office with a PDF copy of the final accepted manuscript. This must be done online again at http://editorialexpress.com/jae. The Editorial Office will then contact authors regarding the transfer of the original word processing version of their manuscript.

Illustrations must be submitted in electronic format where possible. Save each figure as a separate file, in TIFF or EPS format preferably, and include the source file. We favour dedicated illustration packages over tools such as Excel or PowerPoint. These files should be sent by email to the JAE Editorial Office at econjae@usc.edu.

b. Copyright. To enable the publisher to disseminate the author's work to the fullest extent, the author must sign a Copyright Transfer Agreement, transferring copyright in the article from the author to the publisher. The original signed agreement must be submitted to the Editorial Office on acceptance of the manuscript. A copy of the agreement to be used (which may be photocopied) will be sent as an email attachment from the Editorial Office upon acceptance of the paper by the Editor. Copies may also be downloaded from the Wiley Online Library website at http://www.wiley.com/go/ctabglobal. In addition, if the manuscript contains extracts from other copyright works, it is the author's responsibility to obtain written permission from the owners of the publishing rights to reproduce such extracts.

c. Data. Authors of accepted papers are expected to deposit in electronic form a complete set of data used onto the Journal's Data Archive, unless they are confidential. In cases where there are restrictions on the dissemination of the data, the responsibility of obtaining the required permission to use the data rests with the interested investigator and not with the author.

Authors are also encouraged to provide whatever other material is needed to ensure that their results can be replicated without excessive difficulty. This might include computer programs or technical appendices that are not part of the paper itself.

Full instructions for users of the Journal of Applied Econometrics Data Archive are available at http://www.econ.queensu.ca/jae/author-instructions.html. Authors of accepted papers are strongly recommended to read these instructions carefully.

6. Proofs. Proofs will be sent to the author for checking. This stage is to be used only to correct errors that may have been introduced during the production process. Prompt return of the corrected proofs, preferably within two days of receipt, will minimise the risk of the paper being held over to a later issue. Free access to the final PDF offprint of your article will be available via Author Services only. Please therefore sign up for Author Services if you would like to access your article PDF offprint and enjoy the many other benefits the service offers. Further reprints and copies of the journal may be ordered. There is no page charge to authors.
