Aims & Scope

The aim of Arthaniti is to contribute to the development of the science of economics and its applications, as well as to improve communication between academic researchers, teachers and policy makers. The journal has no commitments with any school of economic thought or specific areas of research, and is guided solely by academic excellence. Papers across the entire field of economics, including econometrics, economic history, and political economy will be considered for publication. Both theoretical and empirical manuscripts are welcome. Occasionally Arthaniti plans to organize special issues or topical sections in regular issues to emphasize new research directions. Arthaniti also publishes selected book reviews. In addition, specially invited papers by internationally reputed economists are featured. Manuscripts will be judged solely on the basis of quality of their content. Arthaniti has been adopting a double-blind review process. The chief editor and/or co-editors send submitted papers to the referees only after an initial reading. The editorial board reserves the right to reject any paper at that stage. The editors work towards a common goal to give a first decision within three months from receipt of submission.
