Instructions for Initial Submissions
The Canadian Journal of Economics publishes papers in all areas of economics, with the exception of very narrow papers addressed to small specialist audiences. Correspondence relating to the contents of the Journal should be sent to the editorial office by e-mail, regular mail, or courier.
Manuscripts may be in English or French and should be submitted through Editorial Express as a PDF file. Upon uploading of the paper, a confirmation email will be sent. The submission is not complete if the confirmation email has not been received. Adobe offers a document conversion service.
For a first submission, the main text must be double-spaced, and footnotes and references may be single-spaced. Assuming a standard 11 pt. font or typeface and 1" margins, the manuscript should be no longer than 35 pages, including footnotes, references, tables and graphs. Font sizes ranging from 10 pt. to 12 pt. are acceptable. For a first submission, any reasonable typed or computer-printed format meeting these requirements is acceptable, but authors would be wise to consult the Style Guidelines before submission. It would also be a very good idea to read the Advice to Referees.
For papers including empirical work, simulations, or experimental work, the CJE has established a data availability policy, effective January 1, 2008. Compliance with this policy is mandatory. The CJE makes data sets, software, and technical appendices available through the journal's online archive on this web site.Submission fee
To submit a paper to the Canadian Journal of Economics, at least one of the authors must be a member of the Canadian Economics Associationand pay a submission fee as explained below. We kindly request that you pay the submission fee by credit card. The submission fee is CAD 60 (sixty Canadian Dollars) for all countries of residence (including GST/HST for Canadian residents). We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. If you are unable to pay by credit card, please contact the CJE office to make alternative payment arrangements. However, online credit card payments will speed up the processing of your paper submission.
Authors who are current members of the Canadian Economics Association must only pay a submission fee. Authors who are currently not members of the CEA must first join the CEA and subscribe to the Canadian Journal of Economics. If you are submitting a paper between October and December, you need to obtain a paid-up next-year CEA membership that will provide a complimentary CEA membership for the remainder of the current year.
