Cliometrica provides a leading forum for the exchange of ideas and research in historical economics, covering all facets, all historical periods, and all parts of the world. The journal encourages the methodological debate, use of economic theory, model building, and reliance upon quantification to support models with historical data. Moreover, it stresses the use of standard historical knowledge to broaden understanding and suggest new avenues of research as well as the use of statistical theory and econometrics to combine models with data into a single consistent explanation. Periodically, specialized topics are addressed in special issues.
