Aim & Scope
Many economists today are concerned by the proliferation of journals and the concomitant labyrinth of research to be conquered in order to reach the specific information they require. To combat this tendency, Economics Letters has been conceived and designed outside the realm of the traditional economics journal. As a letter journal, it is:Concise: Contributions must be concise and preferably not exceed a maximum of 4 printed pages, allowing readers to determine their potential interest in a letter very quickly, and to digest a large amount of material in a usable formRapid: Monthly publication ensures a brief manuscript turnover time (maximum of 4 months from submission to final publication)Efficient: A quick way to stay up-to-date with developments in all areas of economics.The only letter journal in its field, Economics Letters is a valuable addition to the specialist literature in offering quick dissemination and easy accessibility of new results, models and methods in all fields of economic research.Each article in Economics Letters is classified according to the JEL Classification System, and an author and subject index is published in the last issue of each volume to facilitate reference. A complete index of volumes 1 - 25 covering 10 years of economic literature is available from the publisher upon request. It provides author, title and subject indexes and thus constitutes a handy reference work for researchers and information officers alike.
