THE ECONOMETRIC SOCIETY ANNUAL REPORTS
REPORT OF THE EDITORS, 2004–2005
THE THREE TABLES BELOW provide essential statistics on this year’s Econometrica submissions in a format similar to the one 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 co-editors.We received 617 new submissions this year. This is another increase over the preceding year, bringing us to a new peak. Moreover, in each of the preceding three years there were more submissions than in any other year but one (there were 600 submissions in 1984/1985). This indicates the burden on our editorial staff and also shows that accepting submissions only from members—a requirement that was started two years ago—does not decrease submissions.
