Author Guidelines

The Bulletin of Economic Research is an international journal publishing papers across the entire field of economics, econometrics and economic history. We publish theoretical, applied and empirical work. To be acceptable for publication they should make an original and substantial contribution to the subject and be of broad interest to economists at large. We strive to come to a speedy and fair decision on every submission.

In addition to full-length articles we publish duly refereed shorter articles, notes and comments. The Bulletin also has a long and continuing tradition of publishing authoritative survey articles in all areas of economics. We also publish special issues based on a theme and do encourage proposals for such special issues. The International Board of Associate Editors actively assist the editors in the editorial running of the Bulletin
