Editorial Statement

The Economic Record is published by Wiley-Blackwell and the Economic Society of Australia to act as a vehicle for the communication of advances in our knowledge and understanding of economics. It publishes papers in all areas of economics: theory, applied and policy. Its contents are listed in the Social Sciences Index and the Journal of Economic Literature.

While the Economic Record is a general economics journal, it also provides a forum for research on the Australian economy. It publishes surveys in economics and book reviews to facilitate the dissemination of knowledge. It is the policy of the Economic Record to foster the replicability of empirical results by other researchers. Accordingly, the Economic Record normally publishes papers only where the data used in the analysis are clearly and precisely documented, are available to others to enable replication of results, and where details of the computations sufficient for replication are provided. If the data are not available or the above requirements cannot be met, the Editor should be informed at the time of submission.

To encourage excellence in research in economics, the Economic Society of Australia annually provides the Best Paper Prize for the author(s) of the paper judged to be the best contribution to economics published in the Economic Record during the preceding year.

THERE ARE TWO AWARDS FOR THE BEST PAPER IN ONE YEAR. ONE FROM THE SOCIETY AND ONE FROM OUR PUBLISHER.

Wiley-Blackwell best paper prize

Every year, Wiley-Blackwell (our publisher) sponsors a prize for the best paper published in the Economic Record that year. A selection panel reviews the published papers and evaluates them according to their relevance and importance; originality in the use of data and theory; elegance of method and exposition; and the strength of policy conclusions. They then select the best paper published that year, the author(s) of which receive A$1000 and a certificate.
