Overview


As the official journal of the Association of Public Economic Theory (APET), Journal of Public Economic Theory (JPET) is dedicated to stimulating research in the rapidly growing field of public economics. Submissions are judged on the basis of their creativity and rigor, and the Journal imposes neither upper nor lower boundary on the complexity of the techniques employed.

This journal focuses on such topics as public goods, local public goods, club economies, externalities, taxation, growth, public choice, social and public decision making, voting, market failure, regulation, project evaluation, equity, and political systems. Coverage includes a wide range of theoretical approaches, including general equilibrium theory, game theory, evolution, experimentation, control theory and dynamics, simulation, axiomatic characterization, and first order and comparative static methods.

In addition to publishing peer-reviewed, full-length articles, JPET features short notes, exposita, comments, survey papers and retrospectives.


Aims and Scope


The Journal of Public Economic Theory is dedicated to the publication of outstanding theoretical work in all areas of public finance. JPET judges the quality of submissions on the basis of their creativity and rigor and therefore imposes neither upper nor lower bound on the complexity of the techniques employed. Subjects which are central to the focus of JPET include but are not limited to: public goods, local public goods, club economies, externalities, taxation, growth, public choice, social and public decision making, voting, market failure, regulation, project evaluation, equity, and political systems.  Examples of theoretical approaches that JPET is especially interested in encouraging include general equilibrium theory, game theory, evolution, experimentation, control theory and dynamics, simulation, axiomatic characterization, and first order and comparative static methods. JPET is devoted mainly to the publication of original research, but will also consider short notes, comments, survey papers, retrospectives, and exposita.

The Journal of Public Economic Theory (JPET) recognizes the value in publishing quality research and literature, and is dedicated to advancing the subjects of theoretical public finance and economics. In support of this objective, all articles in JPET have undergone full peer review prior to publication.
