Aims and scope

The Journal of Economics, Race, and Policy is a scholarly peer-reviewed publication which examines the intersection of local and global issues concerning economic conditions, race, ethnicity, and gender, along with policy prescriptions that address economic disparities.

JERP publishes rigorous papers, both theoretical and empirical, examining the economic outcomes of both public and private sector market forces on groups distinguished by racial, tribal, ethnic, gender, and linguistic differences. The journal is wide ranging and encourages submissions that focus on one particular country or are cross country in nature.

JERP is interdisciplinary and welcomes submissions from economics, sociology, political science, public policy and other relevant areas of study. The main emphasis of journal submissions should be on the economic outcome of differentiated groups and possible economic policy prescriptions to address these disparities.
