    Aims and Scope


    Laboratory methods are uniquely suited to the study of many phenomena that have been difficult to observe directly in naturally occurring economic contexts. For example, the ability to induce preferences and control information structures makes it possible to isolate the effects of alternate economic structures, policies, and market institutions. Moreover, some of the behavioral and equilibrium assumptions underlying many economic theories can be tested fruitfully in a controlled laboratory setting.

    Experimental Economics is an international journal that serves the growing group of economists around the world who use laboratory methods. The journal invites high-quality papers in any area of experimental research in economics and related fields (i.e. accounting, finance, political science, and the psychology of decision making). State-of-the-art theoretical work and econometric work that is motivated by experimental data is also encouraged. The journal will also consider articles with a primary focus on methodology or replication of controversial findings.

    The journal will provide a forum for interactive discussions of major issues, by inviting papers and comments on broad topics. In addition, there will be a section devoted to short papers. The Editors will promote the interests of scholars in the field by ensuring a fast turn-around time for short papers and a firm editorial review of misunderstandings that arise in the referee process for papers that use a relatively new methodology.

    Experimental Economics is structured to promote experimental economics by bringing together innovative research that meets professional standards of experimental method, but without editorial bias towards specific orientations. All papers will be reviewed through the standard, anonymous-referee procedure and all accepted manuscripts will be subject to the approval of both editors. Authors are expected to submit separate data and instructions appendices which will be attached to the journal's web page upon publication.
