Quantitative Economics is oriented towards (1) empirical research that is rigorously informed by econometrics and/or economic theory and (2) econometric and theory work that is empirically directed. In particular, the journal welcomes theoretical and computational papers that have empirical orientation, such as work on identification or estimation and computational techniques with practical interest. Quantitative Economics aims at covering a variety of applied fields, including labor economics, industrial organization, development and growth economics, macroeconomics, international economics, public finance and social economics.
The editorial board is especially interested in providing a forum for papers that are innovative beyond established types of analysis, for papers that are willing to challenge conventional ways of conducting empirically oriented work, and for papers that build new bridges across fields.
Quantitative Economics’ editorial board strives to reduce the length of the editorial process, keeping at a minimum multiple revisions and trying to avoid delays while maintaining the highest standards in the editorial process.
