About the Journal

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 consists of concise communications, which are a vehicle to quickly communicate important pieces of new research. For instance, a theorist could submit to Economic Analysis Letters a thought-provoking example before the analysis is extended to a general theorem in a fully fledged paper that will go elsewhere. Similarly, an experimentalist or an empirical researcher could submit to Economic Analysis Letters some important preliminary results, where perhaps the threshold for robustness, thoroughness or completeness of the analysis is not as high as it would be for a complete paper. Comments or pedagogical notes are not suitable for transmission in this form.

The following are important features of the "letter" format: 

  • Concise: Contributions are usually limited to 2,000 words, allowing readers to determine their potential interest in a letter very quickly, and to digest a large amount of material in a usable form.
  • Rapid: The fast review process and immediate online publication ensure a brief manuscript turnover time. 
  • Efficient: A quick way to stay up-to-date with developments in all areas of economics.

All submissions that pass the desk-rejection phase will be subject to a careful peer-review process. With few exceptions, in which submissions are sent back for small editorial revisions before acceptance, each paper will be either accepted as is or rejected. Economic Analysis Letters aims to have a quick turnover time of up to two months between the submission and 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.
