LACEA is pleased to announce that ECONOMIA, LACEA's journal, has been accepted for coverage in Thomson's Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), as a first step in its process of full accreditation with Thompson Social Science Citation Index (SSCI). Also, to improve timeliness and usefulness of access, from 2018 onwards the journal will be distributed to LACEA's members in electronic format rather than in print.
ECONOMIA is committed to the dissemination of research of excellence conducted in or on the region. With an impact factor of 13.295, ECONOMIA currently ranks 67 in REPEC's ranking by impact factor (https://ideas.repec.org/top/top.journals.simple.html) along other highly respected journals in the profession such as Journal of Banking and Finance and Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control. ECONOMIA publishes peer-reviewed research papers covering a range of topics in applied and empirical economics that are of policy relevance to Latin America. ECONOMIA's emphasis is on rigorous applied theoretical or quantitative work that uses modern analytical tools and, possibly, novel or underexploited databases.
We invite all LACEA members to submit contributions that fit ECOMONIA's aims and scope. Submissions are accepted at any time through our online submissions platform. We are committed to a first response within fifteen weeks of submission. For submission procedures go to http://economia.lacea.org/call_for_papers.htm.
