Elsevier to Publish International Review of Economics Education (IREE) Beginning in January 2013

Oxford, December 17, 2012Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce that beginning in January 2013 it will publish the International Review of Economics Education (IREE).

Since 2003 the International Review of Economics Education has been published electronically twice a year by the Economics Network. From January 2013 onwards Elsevier will publish IREE increasing the number of issues from two to three per calendar year. The Economics Network will continue to maintain strong links with the journal and its editors.

The International Review of Economics Education is dedicated to enhancing learning and teaching in the higher education economics community. It provides a forum for high quality research in the areas of curriculum design, pedagogy, assessment, teaching and learning innovation. The journal seeks to promote critical dialogue on educational theory and practice in economics and to demonstrate the relevance of research to good professional practice.

Marc Chahin, Economics Publisher at Elsevier said, "We are excited to publish the International Review of Economics Education. The field of economics education has until now not specifically been covered by the approximately 70 academic journals published by Elsevier's Economics & Finance division. IREE offers a perfect opportunity for us to fill this gap in our portfolio with a high-quality publication. We are looking forward to our working collaboration with the present team of editors.”
