The Scandinavian Journal of Economics (SJE) publishes a special issue each year on a key topic in economics. Read an earlier Special Issue with a Symposium on Field Experiments here.

The tradition of devoting one issue of the SJE each year to a particular topic in economics dates back to 1969. These issues have proved to be widely read and cited. More recently and with the help of distinguished guest editors, the journal now sends out calls for papers to a select group of leading researchers, followed by a regular refereeing process on the papers submitted. The first such special issue was Behavioral Economics, published in 2004, with Ernst Fehr as guest editor.
