Aims and Scope

Aims and Scope

The B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy (BEJEAP) welcomes submissions that employ microeconomics to analyze issues in organizational economics, consumer behavior, and public policy. We aim to be an international forum for scholarship, whether that scholarship considers a general issue, or pertains to a particular country or region, and authors should bear in mind that our readers come from around the world. Potential topics of interest include: the interaction of firms, the functioning of markets, the effects of domestic and international policy, and the design of organizations and institutions. Articles can be in industrial organization, labor economics, public finance, or other related fields including the economics of education, health, family, development, law, or the environment.

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.

Manuscript formats

Articles submitted to BEJEAP can come in two formats: research papers and letters.

Research papers are fully fledged analyses that contain significant new theoretical or empirical results. There is no strict page maximum but we reserve the right to ask authors to shorten long manuscripts. Tables and Figures should be kept to a minimum.

Letters are short communications that contain new theoretical or empirical results. This could be smaller though interesting contributions, like compact presentations of new ideas, extensions of existing theories that lead to new insights, or replications of existing empirical or experimental studies that extend the original analysis sufficiently to allow inferences on the external validity of the original results. Letters do not exceed 2,500 words of body text and include up to three Tables or Figures. Authors should include a word count with their manuscript.

Submissions to BEJEAP will generally undergo a thorough peer review process, independent of its format. To speed up the review process, however, BEJEAP has the policy to reject manuscripts without peer review if they do not fit the aims and scope of the journal, if they lack originality (i.e., if they do not constitute sufficiently novel contributions to the literature), or if they have a low chance of surviving peer review.

In the interest of a fast track from submission to publication, there will be no major revision rounds for letters. BEJEAP will either accept manuscripts (subject to editorial revisions), invite minor revisions, or reject manuscripts without a detailed referee report. Submitted letters should hence be ready for publication if accepted for publication by the editors.

Questions about submissions and journal content may be directed to the editors.

"My authoring experience was probably the best to date in terms of speed and efficiency. The quality of the referees was also excellent, as good if not better than anything I've experienced (and that includes the AER, Rand, et cetera)."
Mark J. McCabe, Assistant Professor, School of Economics, Georgia Institute of Technology, and contributor to The B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy

"The speed with which the process was completed is so much better than the standard for more established journals in economics. We can only hope you are successful in breaking the conventional delays that are so harmful to the professional development of young economists. You have demonstrated that quality peer review and editing can be done in economics in as timely a fashion as it is done in many other disciplines."
Jack Ochs, Professor and Chair of Economics, University of Pittsburgh, and contributor to The B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy
