In March 2017, the journal celebrates its 10th anniversary. To mark the occasion we have relaunched the journal's website. The new layout will improve readability on all kinds of media and therefore make it easier to access and comment on the journal’s contributions. We would encourage you to get back to us with any comments you may have regarding our improved website: editorial-office@economics-ejournal.org

In the course of our anniversary year, we are planning to publish several new special issues. Selected special issues that are coming up this year, are the following: 

The Sustainable Development Goals— Assessing interlinkages, trade-offs and synergies for policy design, edited by Wilfried Rickels, Kiel Institute for the World Economy, Germany; Jan Börner, University of Bonn, Germany; Adolf Kloke-Lesch, Sustainable Development Solution Network Germany; and Guido Schmidt-Traub, Sustainable Development Solution Network
