The European Economic Review (EER) started publishing in 1969 as the first research journal specifically aiming to contribute to the development and application of economics as a science in Europe.
As a broad-based professional and international journal, the EER welcomes submissions of applied and theoretical research papers in all fields of economics. The aim of the EER is to contribute to the development of the science of economics and its applications, as well as to improve communication between academic researchers, teachers and policy makers across the European continent and beyond.
The EER receives many submissions each year and the Editors are keen to ensure that authors receive an editorial decision in a timely manner. The editors work towards a common goal to give a first decision within four months from receipt of submission (including submission fee payment).
The current turnaround time to a first decision is 90 days, with an approximate acceptance rate of 10%. To avoid unnecessary delay, a paper may be returned to the author before full review if the editors determine that it is not suitable for the journal. This decision comes with a short recommendation from the editors and is made in the interest of the author to avoid loss of valuable time. Please note that in all cases the submission fee is non-refundable.
The EER encourages young researchers to submit their work. Occasionally the EER will organize special issues or topical sections in regular issues to emphasize new research directions.
The European Economic Review is published in 1 volume of 8 printed issues a year.
