Journal of Public Economic Theory
Aims and Scope
The Journal of Public Economic Theory is dedicated to the publication of outstanding theoretical work in all areas of public finance. The Journal judges the quality of submissions on the basis of their creativity and rigor and therefore imposes neither upper nor lower bound on the complexity of the techniques employed. Subjects which are central to the focus of the Journal include but are not limited to: public goods, local public goods, club economies, externalities, taxation, growth, public choice, social and public decision making, voting, market failure, regulation, project evaluation, equity, and political systems. Examples of theoretical approaches that the Journal is especially interested in encouraging include general equilibrium theory, game theory, evolution, behavioral economics, networks, experimentation, control theory and dynamics, simulation, axiomatic characterization, and first order and comparative static methods. The Journal is devoted mainly to the publication of original research, but will also consider short notes, comments, survey papers, retrospectives, and exposita.
