Call for Papers: Special sections in the Economic Papers

The Economic Papers is calling for papers for two special sections to be published in the journal in 2018.

Special Section on ‘International Trade’

International trade makes an important contribution to the Australian economy and has steadily grown as a proportion of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product over the long-run. Empirical and theoretical papers around international trade are being sought for this special section. Both contemporary and historical issues are welcome. Though papers on Australasia will be of particular interest, the journal will also consider papers relating to international trade in other parts of the world.

This special section will be co-edited by Professor Martin Richardson (Australian National University) and Professor Rachel Ong (Curtin University).

Special Section on ‘Understanding Indonesia’s Economic and Financial Systems’

Indonesia is a large economy in the Asia-Pacific region and has enjoyed reasonable macroeconomic success over the last decade. Australia and Indonesia enjoy an important bilateral relationship, underpinned by extensive cooperation spanning economic, political and other domains. Yet very little is known about the progress of the Indonesian economy. The journal is seeking papers that will promote understanding of Indonesia’s economic and financial systems, and its relationship with other countries.

The special issue will be co-edited by Professor Paresh Narayan (Deakin University) and Professor Rachel Ong (Curtin University).

Submitting a paper

The submission deadlines for the special sections are as follows:

  • International Trade – 8 December 2017
  • Understanding Indonesia’s Economic and Financial Systems – 10 February 2018

Author submission guidelines can be found at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1111/(ISSN)1759-3441/homepage/ForAuthors.html.
