Econometrica Editors' Report, 2021–2022
THE JOURNAL PUBLISHED 92 articles (with 70 typeset supplements) and an average of 32 pages per article in 2021. Gold Open Access was offered to authors starting in January 2020 and authors have steadily increased paying the set Article Publication Charge (APC) and retain copyright to their published work. This option is offered to authors during the collection of their Copyright Transfer Form through Wiley Author Services. More details may be found at the journal’s website.
Table II indicates that we received 1041 new submissions this year, and 180 revisions, down from last year’s 1258 new submissions and 244 revisions. It is important to note that submission totals have been inflated in recent years due to the journal’s withdraw-and-resubmit to comply with its paper formatting and length requirements. In the last four years, close to 10% of our submissions were effectively double-counted because they were withdrawn and resubmitted. The decline in new submission numbers may reflect a more educated submitter on journal requirements and less withdraw-resubmits. The number of accepted papers was 74 (112 in 20/21) 44 conditionally accepted (63 in 20/21), and 126 return for revisions (174 in 20/21).

THE ECONOMETRIC SOCIETY ANNUAL REPORTS REPORT OF THE EDITORS OF THE MONOGRAPH SERIES
THE GOAL OF THE SERIES is to promote the publication of high-quality research works in the fields of Economic Theory, Econometrics, and Quantitative Economics more generally. Publications may range from more or less extensive accounts of the state of the art in a field to which the authors have made significant contributions to shorter monographs representing important advances on more specific issues. In addition to the usual promotion by the Publisher (Cambridge University Press) in their advertising and displays at conferences, it also arranges for members of the Econometric Society to receive monographs at a special discount.
