This journal presents papers written from every perspective, in all areas of economics, and is committed to free and open intellectual inquiry from diverse philosophical viewpoints. Each issue offers a mix of articles, book reviews, Eastern Economic Association Presidential Addresses, symposia and dialogues.
The Eastern Economic Journal (EEJ) is published quarterly, offering papers that are methodological and philosophical in approach, as well as empirical and theoretical. Recent articles span a wide range of topics, including the effect of paid family leave on retention of female faculty members; the feasibility of removing the penny and the nickel from circulation in the U.S.; and the effect of smoking bans on infant health.
Founded in 1973, this is the official journal of the Eastern Economic Association.
COVID 19 and impact on peer review
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
