Oxford University Press USA

Oxford University Press (OUP) has signed an agreement with the European Economic Association to publish the Journal of the European Economic Association (JEEA), one of the leading journals in the field, beginning in January 2017.

JEEA is a leading general economics journal covering all areas of economics, with an international focus. It has high-profile, internationally recognized editors and is supported by the European Economic Association, the largest professional economics association outside of the US.

JEEA was established in 2003 and first published by MIT Press. Since 2011 Wiley Blackwell has published the journal.

Martin Green, Senior Publisher at Oxford University Press, said:

"We are tremendously excited that JEEA is moving to OUP. To launch a general interest journal in such a difficult market and establish it within ten years or so as one of the discipline's leading journals is a remarkable achievement, and hats off to the EEA and JEEA editors for making it happen. We have built a very high-quality economics journals program at OUP, and JEEA will fit well alongside the Quarterly Journal of Economics, the Review of Economic Studies, the Review of Financial Studies, amongst others. I look forward to working with the EEA and JEEA editors to build on its success and to establish it even more firmly as a journal recognized worldwide as publishing work of the highest standard and broad relevance."

Fabrizio Zilibotti, President of the European Economic Association, commented:

"JEEA is today one of the most important journals in economics. It publishes high-quality research in all fields of economics. In the last ten years it has more than doubled the number of submissions. It is one of the top 5 or 6 journals in economics. JEEA is one of the flagship activities of the EEA. Its promotion and success has been a strategic goal of the Association since its start in 2003. JEEA is run by a fantastic pool of editors based both in Europe and in the US led by Juuso Välimäki, one of the most-renowned economists in Europe. We are confident that the partnership with OUP will strengthen the journal further, and make of JEEA one of the absolute best journals worldwide."

OUP is delighted to add JEEA to its journals portfolio and will continue to publish articles with global relevance and of the highest scientific quality.
