Your benefits:
  • Quick publication of cutting-edge research
  • Practical implications for public policies
  • Empirical work and applied theory
  • High quality peer-review

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

  • Design of organizations and institutions
  • Industrial organization
  • Health economics
  • Public finance
  • Labour Economics
  • Economics of education, family, development, law, or the environment
  • Effects of domestic and international policy
