THE ECONOMETRIC SOCIETY ANNUAL REPORTS
REPORT OF THE EDITORS, 2003–2004
THE THREE TABLES BELOW provide essential statistics on this year’s Econometrica submissions in the format adopted by previous editorial teams.
Table I gives aggregate statistics on paper submissions and decisions for the past six fiscal years, from July 1 to June 30, and Table II indicates how the submissions are allocated among coeditors. We received 589 new submissions this year. This is a small increase over last year, bringing us close to the peak of 598 in 2001–2002. The last two and three years have had the highest total submissions of any two and three year period in the journal’s history, indicating that the increase is stable. This also suggests that accepting submissions only from members, a requirement that was started last year, does not decrease submissions.
