Adding new “Perspectives” to our debate

economics publishing, diversity, pluralism


The short note introduces the new issue of the Review. With this issue the journal is launching a new section, “Perspectives”, collecting contributions about topics and areas that receive insufficient attention on mainstream economics journals. These may concern replication analyses, or investigations that – although possibly of a less innovative and original character than other articles – focus on geographical regions often neglected in other journals.
