Editorial Policies

Focus and Scope

The Journal of Global Economic Analysis publishes papers reporting developments in theory, data, statistical analysis, methods and teaching in support of applied general equilibrium (AGE) modeling and provides a platform for researchers and teachers to access these innovations. Papers submitted to the Journal of Global Economic Analysis should be accompanied by model code and data files, as pertinent, and instructions to facilitate replication of results. Model, data and instruction files of accepted papers will be available to the public via the Journal’s web site.

The Journal of Global Economic Analysis does not publish applications of existing datasets and models to new policy questions. Authors of application-focused manuscripts are encouraged to submit these studies to appropriate field journals.

The Journal of Global Economic Analysis is an online-only periodical and is published by the Center for Global Trade Analysis.
