Aims and Scope

The B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy (BEJEAP) is an established alternative to overpriced economics titles. Articles are published into four quality-rated tiers, distinguished by breadth of appeal and overall quality. The Editorial Board welcomes submissions that employ microeconomics to analyze issues in organizational economics, consumer behavior, and public policy. Authors should bring to their analysis whatever microeconomic theoretical, experimental or econometric tools are helpful. We publish both empirical work and applied theory (though not more abstract forms of applied theory), and our aim is to disseminate papers that have practical implications for public policy, organizational or individual decision making.


  • Interaction of firms
  • Functioning of markets
  • Effects of domestic and international policy
  • Design of organizations and institutions
  • Industrial organization
  • Labor economics
  • Public finance
  • Economics of education, health, family, development, law, or the environment
