The Atlantic Economic Journal has been established on the premise that there is a substantial need to increase communication and share constructive viewpoints among economists. In addition to formal publication of full length articles, other avenues of less formal communication should be available. A small point may not be worthy of a formal paper but is important enough to warrant dissemination to colleagues. Research in progress may be of interest to other economists. A research approach ending in negative results needs to be shared to save others from similar pitfalls.
The Anthology section has been established to facilitate this form of communication. It will provide a means by which short manuscripts can quickly appear in the AEJ.
All submissions will be formally reviewed by the Board of Editors. Every attempt will be made to complete the review process within one month after receipt of the manuscript. Manuscripts not meeting the guidelines listed below will be rejected without review.
Submit your Anthology in electronic form to http://www.editorialmanager.com/aej/ and follow the instructions.
1. Categories of manuscripts:
(a) A summary of original research completed, briefly stating why it was undertaken, its methodology, and results obtained.
(b) A summary of research in progress and available upon request.
(c) A positive comment about a printed article. This should be of a nature that does not require formal reply.
(d) A corrective comment on errors in one’s own previously printed work.
