ESA-announce Experimental Economics update
We would like to update you about developments at Experimental Economics.
New submission record: The number of newly submitted papers in 2013 was 268, a new record (again). To put this in perspective, the submission numbers for the past five years were:
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 further: We currently publish approximately one in six 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.
New Co-Editor per July 2014: Jacob Goeree’s five-year term as one of the co-Editors of Experimental Economics ends in July 2014. We are pleased and proud to announce that Charles Noussair of Tilburg University will be Jacob’s successor.
Thank you for all your contributions as authors and reviewers!
David J. Cooper and Jacob K. Goeree
Editors of Experimental Economics
