Explorations in Economic History publishes three types of peer-reviewed articles.

Research Articles

Full-length articles reporting on significant breakthroughs in the field of economic history.

Shorter Articles

These can take several forms, including shorter research articles that report on an important contribution to an existing area of research, replication studies and negative results, or articles that exhibit the application of a major new tool or data set that will be widely used in in economic history. Short articles are typically 10-14 manuscript pages plus 2 or 3 tables and figures, and may contain additional information in an online appendix.

Surveys and Speculations

These periodic articles are devoted to examining and reporting on the frontiers of the field of economic history. They are roughly 4,000-8000 words and survey a topic of broad interest to economists, economic historians, and social scientists, more generally. These articles review important recent advancements, but we encourage submissions that also guide researchers and speculate on future directions. Since the format is quite broad, please see some recent examples for models or contact one of the editors for additional direction.
