Submission and Publication Page Fees at Econometric Society Journals

The Executive Committee of the Econometric Society has approved an increase in the submission and publication fees for papers in its three journals: Econometrica, Quantitative Economics and Theoretical Economics.

The following fees will be implemented for all original papers submitted on or after January 1st, 2023: a submission fee for new submissions of US$100 for regular members and US$50 for student members. Publication page fees will be set at 50% the cost of production per page.

The Econometric Society requires membership for first-time submissions and all resubmissions. Invited resubmissions, as well as papers previously reviewed by Econometrica and transferred to either Quantitative Economics or Theoretical Economics with their Econometrica decision letter and reports are exempt from additional submission fees. On the other hand, papers rejected without review will not be refunded their submission fee. In contrast, papers in which all authors reside in countries classified as low-income by the World Bank are exempt from the submission fee. The list of those countries can be found under the heading low-income economies at

Page fees apply to any typeset material, including any approved supplemental appendices. The publication fee will be collected after final proofs but before publication and invoiced at the then-prevailing rate, currently set at US$12. Authors of accepted papers residing in countries classified as either low-income or lower-middle income by the World Bank may request an exemption from the publication fee.

The submission and publication process for papers will not otherwise change; see the relevant submission site for detailed instructions. If you have any questions, please contact the Editorial Office at [email protected]
