To avoid unnecessary delays authors are advised to ensure submissions conform to the new submission guidelines effective from 1st January 2017.
Briefly, to be acceptable for publication papers need to make an important and original contribution of substantive direct or potential value in applications. Furthermore, attention must be paid to the formatting detail. A full explanation of requirements of Editorial Standards and Preparation of Manuscripts is available on:
These changes have been implement by the Editorial Board in order to to streamline and improve the process of publication enabling a rigorous and rapid screening procedure to eliminate all but those papers which display novelty and originality, quality of writing and clarity of presentation, and interest to potential readers.
Each submitted paper is initially reviewed by the Managing Editor and another member of The Econometrics Journal Editorial Board. Papers that (a) are poorly written or unclear, or (b) have relatively little or are of peripheral interest and/or importance or (c) clearly fail to make an important and original contribution of substantive direct or potential value in applications will be rejected normally within a week of submission with relatively little comment to expedite the editorial process.
For those papers sent out for review, as papers receive rapid and dedicated attention , the editorial process should normally be completed within 2 months but should take no longer than 3 months.
Accepted papers will be published within one week on The Econometrics Journal website.
