YER accepts submissions of original articles in all fields of economics. Authors are almost exclusively junior and senior faculty members from major research universities in the US and UK, though we will consider submissions from professionals in related fields and graduate students with particulary strong credentials. Those wishing to submit an article for consideration should contact our editorial team.
YER aims to present the most fascinating and important developments in economics to a broad audience. We seek new ideas and fresh perspectives that will be of interest to even a seasoned economist, but articles are written at a level of sophistication such that an average educated person can enjoy them.
Tell a compelling story. Minimize the use of technical jargon. Include equations if necessary, but communicate primarily through your prose.YER complements articles with pictures, sidebars, graphs, and charts. Please inform the editors if you have materials you wish to provide for such features.
Articles should be between 2,000 and 4,000 words.
Authors retain ownership of the ideas in their articles, but the copyright and reprint permission for the final article is held by the Yale Economic Review. YER does accept articles based on research that has been published (or will be submitted to) peer-reviewed academic journals.
