Content guidelines

Contributions are welcomed from those who apply economic analysis and information in their work and research. Articles can be of any reasonable length and can use mathematical and graphical material as authors deem appropriate. To be considered for publication, there must be a clear statement of why the analysis and information presented in the paper are important to business. That is, papers must pass the “So what?” test. Specific examples of how analysis or information has been used in business are welcome
Business Economics readers are professionals, managers, and researchers in organizations of all sizes and kinds. Their interests—improving their performance on the job and using economics in the workplace—shape what Business Economics editors look for in reviewing submissions. Thus, articles should (a) have ideas relevant to application of economics in business, (b) offer solutions that are translatable into action, and (c) demonstrate clear thinking and expression.

Articles can cover a wide range of topics and practices in different industries, sectors, specializations, and geographic locations. Contributions are welcome from academics, consultants, practitioners, analysts, and policy makers. Contributed articles will be reviewed initially by the Editor and, if the content is deemed appropriate for Business Economics, will be forwarded anonymously for referee review.

Specific guidelines are as follows:

  • Article length should be no more than necessary to cover the topic effectively for applied economics purposes. Typically, this will be significantly under 10,000 words.
  • Authors must state clearly at the outset of the article why and in what way the paper is important for applied economics in business. It must pass the “So what?” test.
  • Authors are free to use whatever mode of expression they think appropriate for communicating their techniques and findings. Graphics and mathematics are welcome. However, theoretical expositions of techniques or analysis not demonstrated to be of value in business economics applications might best be submitted to other journals
