Author Guidelines

Guidelines for Submission to Real Estate Economics

Real Estate Economics has now adopted ScholarOne Manuscripts for online manuscript submission and peer review. The new system brings with it a whole host of benefits including:

• Quick and easy submission

• Administration centralized and reduced

• Significant decrease in peer review times

From now on all submissions to the journal must be submitted online at Full instructions and support are available on the site and a user ID and password can be obtained on the first visit. If you require assistance, please click the link that appears at the top of every ScholarOne page.

Authors will be required to assign copyright in their paper to the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association. Copyright assignment is a condition of publication and papers will not be passed to the publisher for production unless copyright has been assigned.  (Papers subject to government or Crown copyright are exempt from this requirement).  To assist authors an appropriate copyright assignment form will be supplied by the editorial office.

NEW: Online production tracking is now available for your article through Wiley-Blackwell’s Author Services.

Author Services enables authors to track their article - once it has been accepted - through the production process to publication online and in print. Authors can check the status of their articles online and choose to receive automated e-mails at key stages of production so they don’t need to contact the production editor to check on progress. Visit for more details on online production tracking and for a wealth of resources including FAQs and tips on article preparation, submission and more.

Real Estate Economics is covered by Wiley-Blackwell's EarlyView service. EarlyView articles are complete full-text articles published online in advance of their publication in a printed issue. Articles are therefore available as soon as they are ready, rather than having to wait for the next scheduled print issue. EarlyView articles are complete and final. They have been fully reviewed, revised and edited for publication, and the authors’ final corrections have been incorporated. Because they are in final form, no changes can be made after online publication. The nature of EarlyView articles means that they do not yet have volume, issue or page numbers, so EarlyView articles cannot be cited in the traditional way. They are therefore given a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which allows the article to be cited and tracked before it is allocated to an issue. After print publication, the DOI remains valid and can continue to be used to cite and access the article.
