Oxford Journals, a division of Oxford University Press, has announced two new publishing partnerships with the Quarterly Journal of Economics (QJE), on behalf of Harvard University, and the Review of Economic Studies (REStud), on behalf of Review of Economic Studies Ltd.
Christopher Wallace, Secretary and Business Manager of RES Ltd, commented: 'The Review of Economic Studies is delighted to be moving to Oxford University Press. We found that, being a university press, OUP's goals and commitment to quality matched well with the journal's tradition and long-term objectives.'
Paul Klemperer, Edgeworth Professor of Economics at Oxford University, added: 'Having publications as important as QJE and REStud joining forces with a publisher as stable and well-established as OUP is good news for us all.'
QJE and REStud are two of the oldest and most prestigious journals in economics and will move to OUP in 2011. QJE is the world's highest-ranked economics journal by impact factor, and REStud is the highest-ranked economics journal outside of the US and one of the top-5 economics journals worldwide. Both journals publish high-quality research articles across all areas of economics.
Martin Green, Senior Publisher for Economics Journals at Oxford University Press, commented: 'This development is very exciting, and epitomises OUP's focus on the highest quality scholarship. We are achieving dramatic growth in our economics journals programme, which now comprises over 20 journals, and it reaffirms OUP's commitment to working closely with our learned society partners when top journals decide to publish with us.'
