Conference Volume Submissions

Papers accepted and presented at the RES Annual Conference are eligible for consideration for publication in the Conference Issue of the Journal.

The volume is edited by the main Editorial Board, ensuring that publication standards are the same as for regular issues.

Papers accepted for this year's conference volume will be published in May the following year. Turn-around times are very swift. Papers are  submitted in April and final decisions are made between September and December.

Promising papers that cannot meet the tight publication timetable may be invited to revise and resubmit for possible publication in a regular issue of the Economic Journal.

Due to the email problems the RES has been experiencing, the deadline for submissions for the 2017 conference volume has been extended until Friday April 15, 2016 (midnight).
