ESA-announce Experimental Economics update

Posted on 2013/01/11. Filed under: 綜合 |

Dear Colleagues:

We would like to update you about developments at Experimental Economics.

New submission record: The number of newly submitted papers in 2012 was 213, a new record (again). To put this in perspective, the submission numbers for the past four years were:

Year Submissions

2009 132

2010 150

2011 158

2012 213

The rising number of submissions is great news, indicating the strong reputation of the journal. We are happy that top experimenters from around the world want Experimental Economics to publish their papers, and hope that you will continue sending us your best work!

Let’s raise the bar: We currently publish approximately one in five submitted papers but given the dramatic rise in submissions this will need to be lowered. While the selectivity of Experimental Economics is already high, referees for Experimental Economics should further raise the bar. Being the top field journal, the papers we publish need to be of broad interest to the experimental economics community. We should target papers that break new ground over those that are minor extensions of existing work.

Let’s stimulate methodology papers and replications: Experimental Economics is the natural home for methodology papers and replication studies. We are particularly interested in replications of important and highly cited papers, especially if the paper adds something new to the original study. The evaluation of a replication study should not depend on whether or not the result is replicated.

Thank you for all your contributions as authors and reviewers. We wish all of you a productive and happy new year!

David J. Cooper and Jacob K. Goeree

Editors of Experimental Economics

PS: Please feel free to send us feedback and suggestions for how to improve Experimental Economics.
