The Journal of Industrial Economics
First published in 1952, the Journal of Industrial Economics has a wide international circulation and is recognised as a leading journal in the field. It was founded to promote the analysis of modern industry, particularly the behaviour of firms and the functioning of markets. Contributions are welcomed in all areas of industrial economics including:
organization of industry
applied oligopoly theory
product differentiation and technical change
theory of the firm and internal organization
- merger and technology policy
Necessarily, these subjects will often draw on adjacent areas such as international economics, labour economics and law.
The Journal of Industrial Economics has a tradition of publishing a blend of theory and evidence. Theoretical papers are welcomed and should be presented so as to highlight their implications for policy and/ or empirical analysis. Likewise, empirical papers should have a sound theoretical base; and where novel econometric techniques are applied these should be clearly explained. Case studies should be motivated by, and inform, economic theory and should avoid pure description. The journal's editors are ready to publish shorter notes which report significant new data or empirical results, or are short comments on subjects which have featured in previous issues of the journal.
