Objective The B.E. Journal of Macroeconomics (BEJM) publishes significant research and scholarship in both theoretical and applied macroeconomics. The journal’s mandate is to assemble papers from the broad research spectrum covered by modern macroeconomics. The range of topics includes business cycle research, economic growth, and monetary economics, as well as topics drawn from the substantial areas of overlap between macroeconomics and international economics, labor economics, finance, development economics, political economy, public economics, and econometric theory.

Easy-to-use online submission, peer review, and publication system
Quality rating: Authors no longer need to trade off submitting to a more prestigious journal at the cost of an increased chance of rejection. We simultaneously consider each article for four different tiers distinguished by breadth of appeal and overall quality
Authors & Reviewers’ Bank: Scholars enter a social contract to review other papers in a timely manner so their own papers are reviewed rapidly. Strong incentives for timely, quality reviews solve the free-rider problem
Top-caliber reviews: Reviewers who write especially insightful reviews will be invited by editors to publish them as comments. Reviewers can send questions to authors by anonymous email, so reviewers are less likely to misunderstand authors, and authors are more likely to avoid confused writing
Widely disseminated: Readers worldwide have access to your paper at their desktops. More than 77,000 scholars receive email notification of new articles in BEJM, and over 350 institutions subscribe, including all of the top 20
Widely indexed: (among others) in EconLit, JEL, IBSS, RePEc, and Scopus. The full text is crawled and indexed by search engines like Google
