Covid19The first articles included in the Special Focus on Covid-19 have now been published in the Swiss Journal of Economics and Statistics. The collection will be added to as further articles are published. Read the collection here.

Call For Papers: The Covid-19 pandemic presents a great challenge for health policy, but also for economic policy more broadly. In these massively changing times, economists can contribute to shaping the debate. The SJES is inviting submissions that analyse the disease and its impact on the economic and health situation, propose ways to mitigate economic consequences, or discuss ways to return to normal life, among others. For submission guidelines and further information click here.

Founded in 1867, The Swiss Journal of Economics and Statistics (SJES) is a peer-reviewed journal which publishes theoretical and empirical contributions to any field of economics and reaches an international audience. Owned and financed by the Swiss Society of Economics and Statistics, SJES is committed to a high quality, efficient review process with a first round response time of typically less than two months.
