Spring 2022 Submission Policy:

We are no longer accepting submissions to our Spring 2022 journal. Any submissions from now until our Fall 2022 deadline will be considered for the Fall 2022 issue.

Eligibility: All undergraduate students currently enrolled in an accredited college or university are welcome to submit content for review.

Format: Please format your submission as a PDF file, and make sure all figures are included within the document and are readable (please don’t send multiple files) . We would prefer submissions to be double-spaced and in 12-point, Times New Roman font. Please remove any identifying information from your paper (such your names and school) before submitting. Name your file as “[Paper Title]”.

Length: No maximum length for theses or original research papers.

Plagiarism: We maintain a strict zero tolerance policy on plagiarism. According to the University of North Carolina, plagiarism is “the deliberate or reckless representation of another’s words, thoughts, or ideas as one’s own without attribution in connection with submission of academic work, whether graded or otherwise.” For more information about plagiarism—what it is, its consequences, and how to avoid it—please see the UNC’s website.

Topic and Methodology: You are welcome to submit any paper related to economics. However, keep in mind we are an undergraduate journal peer reviewed by mostly undergraduate economics majors, so we may not have the expertise to evaluate topics and methods that stray too far from the standard economics curriculum for undergrads. If we are unable to determine if your paper is of publishable quality, we may not be able to publish it. We also strongly recommend using data analysis to support your arguments. Pure theory papers are unlikely to be published, and pure narrative papers are extremely unlikely to be published.

Citation: Use Chicago format for in-text citations and your works cited page. Include a separate works cited page at the end of your work.

Deadline: The deadline to submit to the Spring 2022 journal is Monday, February 28th 2022 at 11:59 pm Pacific.

Send to: editor@econreview.berkeley.edu with the subject line “Spring 2022 Journal Submission: [FirstName LastName], [Paper Title]”. For example: “Spring 2022 Journal Submission: Oliver Williamson – The Economics of Organization: The Transaction Cost Approach”.

Please direct any questions you may have to the same email address as above. We will reach out after the above deadlines regarding your acceptance status to our journal. Please note that we no longer accept any op-eds, essays, or articles for consideration.

Editing Policy:

We reserve the right to edit submissions for grammar, clarity, and length. We will NEVER edit for content or ideas, and we will make every effort to contact the author or speaker before publishing an edited or abridged version of his or her original content.

Duplicate Submissions Policy:

We have no policy against duplicate publication; however, if you have already submitted or published your work in another journal, you should check with that organization about their policy regarding duplicate publication.

Copyright Policy:

All authors retain copyright over their original work. No part of our journal, whether text or image, may be used for any purpose other than personal use. For permission to reproduce, modify, or copy materials printed in this journal for anything other than personal use, kindly contact the respective authors.
