Aims and scope
Founded in 1864, The Swiss Journal of Economics and Statistics (SJES) is a peer-reviewed journal which publishes contributions to any field of economics. It reaches an international audience through worldwide open access. Owned and funded by the Swiss Society of Economics and Statistics, SJES is committed to a high-quality and efficient review process with a first-round response time of typically less than two months. SJES particularly welcomes contributions from early-career researchers. As a journal of economics, SJES does not publish contributions in pure statistics.
From time to time, the Swiss Journal of Economics and Statistics publishes Thematic Collections on topics of special interest.
Watch out for collections that are open for submission:
This Series of Commentaries aims to contribute to the public debate in Switzerland and beyond by publishing a small number of papers written by distinguished economists with a strong profile in public debate. The first article by Monika Bütler can be read here.
The goal of SJES Data is to describe reusable datasets and to make reproducibility and generation of new insights with existing data as easy as possible. Contributions from economics and related fields are welcome. Guest Editor: Rafael Lalive (University of Lausanne).
The Digital Transformation affects many aspects of private and public lives, including private and political decisions. This Collection aims to contribute to understand the related economic and societal challenges, opportunities and possible coping strategies. Guest Editor: Conny Wunsch (University of Basel).
Previously published collections are available for consultation:
The Covid-19 pandemic not only presents a great challenge for health policy, but also for economic policy more broadly. In this Collection, economists contribute to analyze its impact on the economic and health situation, and to propose ways to mitigate economic consequences and return to normal life.
