Special Display: AEA Journals

January 18, 2010 at 10:11 am Leave a comment

Discover the journals published by the American Economic Association (AEA) at a special display on the first floor of the library from 18 – 31 January.

The AEA was founded in 1885 by a small group of economists to encourage economic research, discussion and publishing.  It has now grown to a membership of about 18,000, over half of whom are academics, including several Nobel Laureates. One of its prestigious economics prizes was a precursor to the Nobel prize in Economics. This year marks the 125th anniversary of the Association.

The AEA publishes three flagship journals which are ranked among the top economics journals in ISI’s Journal Citation Report (what’s this?) :

  • The Journal of Economic Abstracts became the Journal of Economic Literature in 1969 and gave rise to the indexing and abstracting service EconLit.(Ranked #2, impact 4.842)
  • The Journal of Economic Perspectives focuses on applications in the business and public sectors. (Ranked #3, impact 3.944)
  • The American Economic Review was the most widely viewed journal in JSTOR in 2006 & 2007 and includes the proceedings of the AEA’s annual meeting. (Ranked #12, impact 2.285)

INSEAD Faculty regularly contribute to these journals. The most recent article was published by Ilian Mihov in AER (Sticky Prices and Monetary Policy: Evidence from Disaggregated US Data by Boivin, Giannoni and Mihov, AER vol. 99 no 1, March 2009, p.350-384).

Four new AEA journals appeared in 2009, under the common title of American Economic Journal. The new journals are subtitled: Applied Economics; Economic Policy; Macroeconomics; and Microeconomics. Read the announcement published by the Chronicle of Higher Education.

All the AEA journals are available in the library. You are most welcome to browse and borrow the print editions which are on the first floor. Online editions can be found using the Journal Finder and are indexed in Business Source Complete and EconLit. Alerts can be set up to inform you of newly published articles.
