We are thrilled to announce, in partnership with Bocconi University, the first ever virtual World Congress.
Over the past few weeks, the Econometric Society and Bocconi University have been working very hard to make the virtual version of the World Congress a success.
In view of the difficult circumstances surrounding COIVID 19 and the financial impact it has had on so many, the Executive Committee of the Society decided yesterday to postpone the collection of submission and publication fees until September 1, 2020.
The Econometric Society has always been in favor of the broadest possible dissemination of academic research. As you know, Quantitative Economics and Theoretical Economics have been open access journals since their inception. The Executive Committee agreed at its last meeting to move Econometrica to a hybrid journal model by offering a Gold Open Access option. As a result, authors of accepted papers will now have the choice to pay an Article Publication Charge (APC) of $4500 and retain copyright to their published work.
The Executive Committee of the Econometric Society has approved two modest fees associated with the submission and publication of papers in its three journals: Econometrica, Quantitative Economics and Theoretical Economics.
The following fees will be implemented beginning Friday, May 1, 2020 for all original papers submitted after this date: a submission fee of $50 per paper and a publication fee currently set at $10 per page.
Because of the global challenges presented by COVID-19, many members have been
asking whether we plan to postpone or cancel this summer's World Congress in Milan
scheduled for August 17-August 21, 2020. Rest assured, we have no plans to postpone
or cancel at this time. We want to let you know that the World Congress team at Bocconi
University and the Econometric Society continue to plan confidently for the Congress.
We are pleased to report the election of the following members to their respective Regional Standing Committees. There were 599 members who voted in 2019 for the 2020 RSC.
