Journal of Applied Economics

JAE transferred to Routledge and Taylor & Francis

Our Journal is undergoing a transition since it is being transferred to Routledge/Taylor and Francis. The Journal of Applied Economics is becoming an Open Access journal. Open Access (OA) means you can publish your research so it is free to access online as soon as it is published, meaning anyone can read (and cite) your work. In order to publish in the journal, an Article Publishing Charge (APC) is required upon acceptance of your article. The APC for JAE is $975 / £750 / €865, excluding any applicable taxes. There are no charges for submission to the journal.
