The Evolutionary and Institutional Economics Review (EIER) is issued by the Japan Association for Evolutionary Economics to provide an international forum for new theoretical and empirical approaches to evolutionary and institutional economics. EIER, free from the view of equilibrium economics and methodological individualism, should face the diversity of human behavior and dynamic transformation of institutions. In EIER, “economics” is used in its broadest sense. It covers areas from the classic research in economic history, economic thought, economic theory, and management science to emerging research fields such as economic sociology, bio-economics, evolutionary game theory, agent-based modeling, complex systems study, econo-physics, experimental economics, and so on. EIER follows the belief that a truly interdisciplinary discussion is needed to propel the investigation in the dynamic process of socio-economic change where institutions as emergent outcomes of human actions do matter. Although EIER is an official journal of the Japan Association for Evolutionary Economics, it welcomes non-members' contributions from all parts of the world. All the contributions are refereed under strict scientific criteria, although EIER does not apply monolithic formalistic measure to them. Evolution goes hand in hand with diversities; this is also the spirit of EIER.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
