Welcome to The Review of Economic Studies

The Review was founded in 1933 by a group of young British and American Economists. It is published by The Review of Economic Studies Ltd, whose objective is to encourage research in theoretical and applied economics, especially by young economists, and to publish the results in the Journal. The Review of Economic Studies is essential reading for economists. It is one of the core economics journals, consistently ranking among the top five titles.


We are very pleased to welcome Abi Adams-Prassl, Pedro Bordalo, Gharad Bryan, Konrad Burchardi, Michael Callen, Matthew Elliott, Luca Fornaro, Joachim Freyberger, Daniel Garrett, Nir Jaimovich, Thomas Le Barbanchon, Victoria Vanasco, and Shengxing Zhang joining the Editorial Board with effect from 1st January 2021. We are also excited to announce the appointment of Michèle Tertilt to the Board of Directors, and Myrto Kalouptsidi, Fuhito Kojima and Anna Mikusheva as Foreign Editors.

We are extremely grateful to the service of the Board Members stepping down at the end of 2020. They are Nicolas Coeurdacier, Bård Harstad, Peter Kondor, Dennis Kristensen, Alberto Martin, Daniel Paravisini, Olivier Tercieux, and Dimitri Vayanos.

To gauge the potential impact of COVID-19 specifically on the productivity of women, we analysed data on first and follow-up submissions to the Review. The analysis can be found here.
