Aims and scope

- update at: 6 Dec 2023

Economic Analysis Letters (EAL) believes in the importance of inspiration for economic research, and aims to collect the analysis inspiration of outstanding economic researchers. With an open attitude and length limitation, EAL can provide convenience for authors to transform their inspiration into research results and spread them worldwide. All researchers are welcome to submit their innovative articles to Economic Analysis Letters.

The "letter" format is characterized by concise communications, serving as a means to promptly convey significant aspects of new research. For example, a theorist might submit a thought-provoking example to Economic Analysis Letters before developing it into a general theorem within a comprehensive paper destined for another publication. Similarly, experimentalists or empirical researchers could submit essential preliminary findings to Economic Analysis Letters, with the understanding that the robustness, thoroughness, or completeness threshold might not be as stringent as that for a full-length paper.

Key features of the "letter" format include:

  • Conciseness: With submissions typically not exceeding 3,000 words, readers can quickly ascertain their interest and efficiently assimilate substantial content.
  • Rapidity: A fast review process coupled with immediate online publication ensures a quick manuscript turnaround.
  • Efficiency: The platform serves as a convenient avenue for staying abreast of advancements in all economic fields.

Submissions that pass the desk-rejection phase will undergo a meticulous peer-review process, typically sent to a minimum of one independent expert reviewer to assess the scientific quality of the paper. Economic Analysis Letters aims for a prompt turnaround time of up to two months from submission to final decision.

The journal is a Gold Open Access journal, online readers don't have to pay any fee. All Article Processing Charges (APCs) are waived until the end of 2024. Anser Press retains ownership of Economic Analysis Letters.

The intended readership of Economic Analysis Letters includes researchers, practitioners, and anyone in search of inspiration for economic research.
