Focus and Scope

The European Journal of Government and Economics (EJGE) is an international academic journal for peer reviewed research on all aspects of government and economics. EJGE is particularly interested in current issues regarding the interrelationship between the fields of government and economics, from the influence of government on the economy (economic policy) to economic explanations of government (public choice). It is also particularly interested in questions directly or indirectly related to Europe.

Peer Review Process

The editors read all submitted manuscripts. Authors of papers that are judged to be of sufficient interest, but lack in some aspects, may be asked to improve their manuscripts before the external review. The editor will directly reject manuscripts that are not of sufficient interest or quality.

Appropriate manuscripts undergo a double-blind peer-review process. To maximize quality, each manuscript is typically reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. The editorial team only invites resubmissions when there is a reasonable chance that a revised version of the article will be accepted at a later stage.

Publication Frequency

The European Journal of Government and Economics is a biannual publication.
