The journals with our department’s association in their editorial boards are:
THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS AND SOCIOLOGY
The American Journal of Economics and Sociology (AJES) was founded in 1941, with support from the Robert Schalkenbach Foundation, to provide a forum for continuing discussion of issues emphasized by the American political economist, social philosopher, and activist, Henry George (1839-1897). Today, the exciting encounters between sociology and economics remain a natural subject to explore, and AJES continues to publish carefully crafted essays in the social sciences.
CONTEMPORARY ECONOMIC POLICY
Contemporary Economic Policy publishes scholarly economic research and analysis on issues of vital concern to business, government, and other decision makers. Leading western scholars, including three Nobel laureates, are among CEP’s authors. The objectives are to communicate results of high quality economic analysis to policymakers, focus high quality research and analysis on current policy issues of widespread concern, increase knowledge among economists of features of the economy key to understanding the impact of policy, and to advance methods of policy analysis.
This journal publishes high quality papers addressing the gap between economic theory and observed data derived from econometric methods. Papers explore such topics as estimation of established relationships between economic variables, testing of hypotheses derived from economic theory, policy evaluation, simulation, forecasting, methodology, and econometric methods and measurement. Emphasizing the reproducibility of empirical results, the journal publishes replication studies that report on both positive and negative results. Datasets are provided for readers who wish to replicate an author’s results.
This journal probes the limits of econometric knowledge, featuring regular, state-of-the-art refereed articles and book reviews, as well as retrospective, critical, and readable surveys of current or developing topics. Special issues of the journal are developed by a world-renowned editorial board which brings together leading experts on a variety of specific themes in econometrics. Reviews of books, software, and benchmarking of existing software are also within the scope of the journal.
THE INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF FORECASTING
It is a leading journal in its field. It is the official publication of the International Institute of Forecasters (IIF) and shares its aims and scope. More information about the IIF may be found on the Internet at http://www.forecasters.org. The International Journal of Forecasting publishes high quality refereed papers covering all aspects of forecasting. Its objective (and that of the IIF) is to unify the field, and to bridge the gap between theory and practice. The intention is to make forecasting useful and relevant for decision and policy makers who need forecasts. The journal places strong emphasis on empirical studies, evaluation activities, implementation research and ways of improving the practice of forecasting. It is open to many points of view and encourages debate to find solutions for problems facing the field.
JOURNAL OF APPLIED ECONOMETRICS
The Journal of Applied Econometrics is a leading international journal in the field of Econometrics with an impact factor of 1.867. It aims to publish articles of high quality dealing with the application of existing as well as new econometric techniques to a wide variety of problems in economics and related subjects, covering topics in measurement, estimation, testing, forecasting, and policy analysis. The emphasis is on the careful and rigorous application of econometric techniques and the appropriate interpretation of the results. The economic content of the articles is stressed.
The intention of the Journal of Applied Econometrics is to provide an outlet for innovative, quantitative research in economics which cuts across areas of specialisation, involves transferable techniques, and is easily replicable by other researchers. Contributions that introduce statistical methods that are applicable to a variety of economic problems are actively encouraged. The Journal also aims to publish review and survey articles that make recent developments in the field of theoretical and applied econometrics more readily accessible to applied economists in general.
JOURNAL OF ASIAN AND AFRICAN STUDIES

JOURNAL OF DEVELOPING SOCIETIES
The Journal of Developing Societies is a refereed international journal on development and social change not only in ‘developing’ countries but also the ‘developed’ societies of the world. It provides an interdisciplinary forum for the publication of theoretical perspectives, research findings, case studies, policy analyses and normative critiques on the issues, problems and policies of both mainstream and alternative approaches to development. The journal represents the full range of diverse theoretical and ideological viewpoints on development that exist in the contemporary international community.
LATIN AMERICAN PERSPECTIVE
The bimonthly Latin American Perspectives (LAP), founded in 1974, is a theoretical and scholarly journal for the discussion and debate on the political economy of capitalism, imperialism, and socialism in the Americas. Peer-reviewed, it publishes thematic issues, serves as an interdisciplinary forum, and welcomes manuscripts based on research findings, commentaries, debates, book and film reviews.

It is known for its early debates on development, underdevelopment, and dependency and generally for its emphasis on class analysis of political economic and sociocultural realities. It desires especially to bring the cutting edge work of Latin American scholars to English-speaking readers.
MACROECONOMICS AND FINANCE IN EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES
This journal invites original research contributions on all aspects of macroeconomics and finance and their interaction. Potential topics include growth, microfoundations of macroeconomics, monetary, exchange rate and fiscal policy in an open economy, currency and financial crises, regulation, banking, capital and forex markets, corporate finance and governance. Rapid opening out, changes in financial flows, and evolving markets and regulation in emerging economies pose valuable research questions for which this international journal provides a forum. Theoretical and empirical papers of diverse yet rigorous methodologies are welcome. We are particularly interested in papers that are conceptually innovative and relevant in the context of emerging economies. Contributions by academics, industry analysts, as well as policy makers are solicited in order to provide alternative perspectives and an unbiased assessment of current trends for a wide variety of users.
“Macroeconomic Dynamics publishes theoretical, empirical or quantitative research of the highest standard. Papers are welcomed from all areas of macroeconomics and from all parts of the world. Major advances in macroeconomics without immediate policy applications will also be accepted, if they show potential for application in the future. Occasional book reviews, announcements, conference proceedings, special issues, interviews, dialogues, and surveys are also published. ”
