Economic Affairs

“Economic Affairs is lively, thought-provoking and informative. It should be read by people on all parts of the political spectrum.” — David Willetts MP
Economic Affairs is published jointly by the Institute of Economic Affairs and the University of Buckingham and exists to improve understanding of the role of markets in the economy and society. The journal is inspired by a broadly classical liberal approach and publishes a wide variety of policy-relevant papers based on various of theoretical and empirical methodologies. These include neo-classical, Austrian, institutional and public choice economics. Work building on other contingent disciplines, such as politics, sociology, law and psychology is also published in the journal.

The editorial board encourages the submission of original empirical research and scholarly literature reviews. In some cases papers may be revisions of material delivered at academic conferences. All submissions should have clear and explicit policy conclusions. In all cases a premium is placed on clarity and good writing.

The editorial board invites submissions from authors at all stages of their careers, but is keen to encourage newer authors to submit work, perhaps based on relevant doctoral and post-doctoral research. Work by practising economists is also welcome. Economic Affairs particularly welcomes contributions from non-UK authors and aims to heighten awareness of the experience of policy towards the market across Europe and the wider world.
Further details about the journal, article submission requirements, and so on, can be found from the journal home page.
Single issues of Economic Affairs can be purchased and a sample article for each issue is available free online. Subscription is not expensive for individuals, students and teachers. Students (£27), teachers (£33) and schools (£35) can take a year's subscription at discounted rates. Subscribers are entitled to hard copies and also online access to the full Economic Affairs archive. Subscribing schools can provide all their students with online access. Most college and university libraries can access all editions of Economic Affairs though Ebsco, Synergy and related packages.
