Welcome! As of 2016 the Review of Economics as well as all other journals of Lucius and Lucius Verlagsgesellschaft are published by De Gruyter Oldenbourg.
Aims and Scope The Review of Economics (Jahrbuch für Wirtschaftswissenschaften) is a peer-reviewed general interest journal and publishes articles from all fields of economics. Only articles with a strong policy focus are considered for publication. The Review of Economics will consider papers that are based on (i) a well defined theoretical model (ii) an empirical analysis or (iii) an experimental or (iv) an evidence-based framework. The Review of Economics is also highly interested in survey articles on important policy issues. Since the Review of Economics intends to deliver a forum for policy contributions and to influence the public debate we guarantee a quick and efficient referee process (the initial publication decision will be made within a maximum of 90 days). The editors may decide to publish papers without a referee process whenever authors send their submissions together with the referee reports and the decision letter of the previous submission and explain how they reacted to the reports. Accepted articles will be pre-published on the internet page of the journal as soon as they are accepted. Because the Review of Economics is not an e-Journal all articles also appear in a regular print version with some delay.
Partner Journal Czech Journal of Economics and Finance
The Czech Journal of Economics and Finance (ISSN 0015-1920) is an English-language, double-blind refereed academic journal published in Prague since 1951. It devotes special attention to monetary economics, public finance, financial economics, and international economics, but it is open to high-quality papers from all fields of modern economics. The editors prefer empirically oriented papers, but do not exclude review articles or theoretical contributions provided that they are of high quality and relevant to the journal's aims.
The Review of Economics was founded in 1950 by the three German economists Carl Brinkmann, Andreas Predohl and Reinhard Schaeder as "Jahrbuch fur Sozialwissenschaft". Among the contributors of the rst issue of the journal were famous scientists such as Oskar Morgenstern and Joseph Schumpeter. In 1995 the journal was renamed as "Jahrbuch fur Wirtschaftswissenschaften". While until 2012 the journal published articles in both German and English language, since 2013 only contributions in English are considered for publication. Since then the journal is published under the title "Review of Economics".
