Welcome to Economics!

Economics is a pathbreaking journal that adopts an open source approach to publication, viewing research as a cooperative enterprise between authors, editors, referees, and readers. [Aims and Scope] You are strongly encouraged to join the journal's community and become a registered reader. As such, you can comment on articles. And, of course, you can always submit a paper.

Recent Papers

Economics is a general interest journal. By clustering contributions on similar topics in our topic list, we want to provide a quick link to contributions in different fields of interest. The topic list is permanently updated and new topics will be added after a significant number of contributions has been published. The topics contain all contributions—journal articles as well as discussion papers—that fit into their subject area.
