Published by the Institute for Economic Policy at the University of Cologne
At the same time as the Institute for Economic Policy at the University of Cologne was founded, the "Wirtschaftspolitische Chronik" was created. Since 1984 it is known under the name "Journal for Economic Policy".
The journal is open to publications from all areas of economics. Articles regarding current questions of German, European or international economic policy are preferred. At the center of each issue is the economic policy forum. It deals with topics, which are controversially discussed among the general public.
