About the journal

Econometrica publishes original articles in all branches of economics - theoretical and empirical, abstract and applied, providing wide-ranging coverage across the subject area. It promotes studies that aim at the unification of the theoretical-quantitative and the empirical-quantitative approach to economic problems and that are penetrated by constructive and rigorous thinking. It explores a unique range of topics each year - from the frontier of theoretical developments in many new and important areas, to research on current and applied economic problems, to methodologically innovative, theoretical and applied studies in econometrics.

Information for authors

Econometrica maintains a long tradition that submitted articles are refereed carefully and that detailed and thoughtful referee reports are provided to the author as an aid to scientific research, thus ensuring the high calibre of papers found in Econometrica. An international board of editors, together with the referees it has selected, has succeeded in substantially reducing editorial turnaround time, thereby encouraging submissions of the highest quality.

We strongly encourage recent Ph. D. graduates to submit their work to Econometrica. Our policy is to take into account the fact that recent graduates are less experienced in the process of writing and submitting papers.

Instructions for Submitting Articles

To submit to Econometrica you must be a member of the Econometric Society.

Key Instructions: Papers should be submitted in PDF format. They should be easily readable and should be under 45 pages. Authors should report in a cover note any relevant relationships between their submission and other work by the same author currently under review at other journals or reviewed earlier at Econometrica. Cover notes are otherwise ordinarily discouraged. Submission implies that the work is original, unpublished and not under review elsewhere. Authors are required to supply data sets, programs and other material necessary to replicate results reported in the submission. At least one author must be a member of the Econometric Society. Further submission instructions are listed on the Econometrics Society website.
