Aims and Scope
The Journal of Economics and Statistics (Jahrbücher für Nationalökonomie und Statistik) is a scientific journal published in Germany since 1863. The journal publishes papers in all fields of economics and applied statistics. A specific focus is on papers combining theory with empirical analyses.
Papers providing conclusions for economic policy in Europe are particularly welcome. Nevertheless, distinguished papers dealing exlusively with economic theory, empirical models, or economic history, will not be excluded from consideration.
The editors invite replication studies focusing on the robustness of empirical findings.
The section Data Observer presents articles on data sets available for empirical research and institutions providing research data. The journal also publishes special issues, short comments, and book reviews.
Journal of Economics and Statistics now also available through JSTOR
Articles published in the Journal of Economics and Statistics are now also available through JSTOR. Depending on the locally available licences and the date of publication of the article access to full texts might be available.
Besides JSTOR online access is also possible through EconLit (EBSCO), WISO and the online access provided by the publisher. All articles published since 1999 are also listed in EconPapers with links to EconLit and WISO.
