Econ Journal Watch welcomes submissions of Comments on articles that appear in economics journals. Published since 2004, as of 2019 EJW appears twice yearly, in March and September. EJW also welcomes essays, reflections, and investigations that speak to the nature and character of economics research and professional economists. EJW watches the journals for inappropriate assumptions, weak chains of argument, phony claims of relevance, omissions of pertinent truths, and irreplicability—EJW welcomes replication studies. EJW is an outlet for pointed, constructive criticism of professional economics. Articles appearing in EJW frequently apply theories of failure—market, government, organizational, intellectual, moral—to the practices and institutions of economists. An editorial conversation about publishing in EJW is found here.
EJW also welcomes submissions beyond Econ, from social sciences and history, as explained here.
