The Canadian Journal of Economics welcomes its new Data Editor, Peter Morrow (University of Toronto). The CJE has had a Data Availability Policy since January 1, 2008. The policy follows closely that of the American Economic Review, which has also been adopted by the top general interest journals in economics. The new position of Data Editor at the CJE has been created with the intention of helping authors satisfy the requirements of the policy.
The CJE receives around 300 submissions per year and publishes around 60 of these papers. It is a general interest journal that welcomes submissions in all fields. In 2014, the mean time to a first decision was 85 days, and all authors received a first decision within 9 months of the date of submission.
