Important updates about the Journal of Socio-Economics (continued as the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics)

I am happy to report that starting from its April 2013 volume, the Journal of Socio-Economics is indexed in the Web of Science database of Thomson Reuters. Addition of the journal to Journal Citation Reports and computation of its impact factor are expected in the future. In the meantime the impact factor based on another database (SCImago) is available (see http://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-socio-economics/news/editorial-the-impact-factor-and-ranking/).

Another important change is that the journal changes its title to the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics (JoBEE) starting from the April 2014 volume. The journal originally started as the Journal of Behavioral Economics in 1972. Volumes 1-19, over the years 1972-1990, were published under this title. In 1991 the title changed to the Journal of Socio-Economics. However, the recent scope of the journal and the way I see it moving forward led others and me to think that the new title of "Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics" better captures the journal’s content, and consequently the decision to change the title was made.

I want to take this opportunity to thank the Associate Editors, Book Review Editor, Editorial Board Members and ad-hoc referees, whose cooperation and efforts help me tremendously in editing the journal and improving both the quality of the journal and the efficiency and timeliness of the review process.

And to our authors – thank you for sending us your papers and please consider the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics as an outlet for your high-quality research.

All the best,

Ofer Azar
