Research Note Style Instructions

International Advances in Economic Research 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.

Research Notes has been established to facilitate this form of communication. They provide a means by which short manuscripts can quickly appear in IAER. Every attempt will be made to complete the review process within one month after receipt of the Research Note.


Submit your Research Note in electronic form to and follow the instructions. Your Research Note must be double spaced and typewritten. Total length of text must be between 700 and 800 words. Give a clear idea of the main conclusions of the Research Note in the opening sentence. DO NOT include equations, tables, graphs, diagrams, or footnotes. Numbers may be included. References to previously published works should appear in brackets and within the body of the text. Include the author(s) name, name of the journal or book, and year of publication, like so: (Author last name(s), Journal, 2016). Do not include a reference list at the end of the research note.


No reprints of Research Notes can be provided. Make copies of them prior to submission if copies are desired.
