Econometrica publishes original articles in all branches
of economics - theoretical and empirical, abstract and applied,
providing wide-ranging coverage across the subject area. It
promotes studies that aim at the unification of the
theoretical-quantitative and the empirical-quantitative approach to
economic problems and that are penetrated by constructive and
rigorous thinking. It explores a unique range of topics each year -
from the frontier of theoretical developments in many new and
important areas, to research on current and applied economic
problems, to methodologically innovative, theoretical and applied
studies in econometrics.
Econometrica maintains a long tradition that submitted
articles are refereed carefully and that detailed and thoughtful
referee reports are provided to the author as an aid to scientific
research, thus ensuring the high calibre of papers found in
Econometrica. An international board of editors, together
with the referees it has selected, has succeeded in substantially
reducing editorial turnaround time, thereby encouraging submissions
of the highest quality.
We strongly encourage recent Ph. D. graduates to submit their
work to Econometrica. Our policy is to take into account the
fact that recent graduates are less experienced in the process of
writing and submitting papers.
