Economics Web (HEW)
We are soliciting contributions from heterodox
economists (ICAPE members and other interested parties) for a Heterodox Economics
Website. The goal is to promote heterodox economics by providing a web resource
for teachers, researchers, and students. Please consider joining the team
of project editors and contributing your own web resources, research, syllabi,
and course materials to the project. For a draft description of this project,
you can read a draft paper prepared
by Steve Cohn and Geoff Schneider for the 2003 ICAPE conference that describes
the project in detail. If you are interested in participating, send an email
to Steve Cohn or Geoff
Heterodox Economics Journals (Scholarly)
Economics: The journal is concerned with extending and integrating the
study and management of ``nature's household'' (ecology) and ``humankind's
household'' (economics). This integration is necessary because conceptual
and professional isolation have led to economic and environmental policies
which are mutually destructive rather than reinforcing in the long term. The
journal is transdisciplinary in spirit and methodologically open.
- Feminist Economics: provides
an open forum for dialogue and debate about feminist economic perspectives.
By opening new areas of economic inquiry, welcoming diverse voices, and encouraging
critical exchanges, the journal enlarges and enriches economic discourse.
The goal of Feminist Economics is not just to develop more illuminating theories,
but to improve the conditions of living for all children, women, and men.
- Gender, Place
and Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography: provides a forum for debate
in human geography and related disciplines on theoretically-informed research
concerned with gender issues. It also seeks to highlight the significance
of such research for feminism and women’s studies.
Institutional and Evolutionary Economics
- Journal of Economic Issues:
JEI is an international journal of institutional and evolutionary economics,
publishing articles that deal with basic economic problems, economic policy,
methodology, the organization and control of economies, and specialized fields
- Journal of
Evolutionary Economics: provides an international forum for a new approach
to economics. Following the tradition of Joseph A. Schumpeter, it is designed
to focus on original research with an evolutionary conception of the economy.
The journal will publish articles with a strong emphasis on dynamics, changing
structures (including technologies, institutions, beliefs and behaviours)
and disequilibrium processes with an evolutionary perspective (innovation,
selection, imitation, etc.). It favours interdisciplinary analysis and is
devoted to theoretical, methodological and applied work.
and Institutional Economics Review: issued by the Japan Association for
Evolutionary Economics to provide an international forum for new theoretical
and empirical approaches to evolutionary and institutional economics. The
Review, free from the view of equilibrium economics and methodological individualism,
should face the diversity of human behavior and dynamic transformation of
institutions. In the Review, 'economics' is used in its broadest sense. It
covers from the classic research in economic history, economic thought, economic
theory, and management science to emerging research fields such as economic
sociology, bio-economics, evolutionary game theory, agent-based modeling,
complex systems study, econo-physics, experimental economics, and so on. The
Review believes that a truly interdisciplinary discussion is needed to propel
the investigation in the dynamic process of socio-economical change where
institutions as emergent outcomes of human actions do matter.
- Revista De Economia
Institucional (in Spanish) a biannual publication that has the purpose
to stimulate research related with political economy, economy and philosophy,
law and economics, economic history and theory of games, within the theoretical
bases of institutional economics. Revista de Economía Institucional
is written in Spanish, although we publish Spanish versions of articles in
English, French and Italian.
Marxist and Radical Economics
- Capital and Class: provides
a critique of global capitalism in the Marxist tradition, reaching out into
the labour, trade union and other radical movements, such as anti-racism,
environmentalism and feminism.
- Capitalism Nature Socialism:
an international red-green journal of theory and politics. Key themes are
the dialectics of human and natural history; labor and land; workplace struggles
and community struggles; economics and ecology; and the politics of ecology
and ecology of politics. The journal is especially concerned to join (and
relate) discourses on labor, ecology, feminist and community movements; and
on radical democracy and human rights.
and Society: a radical interdisciplinary journal of theory and politics.
Economy and Society promotes new debates and currents of social thought. The
journal has explored the social sciences in the broadest interdisciplinary
sense, in articles from some of the world's leading sociologists and anthropologists,
political scientists, legal theorists, philosophers, economists and other
renowned scholars. Economy and Society covers questions ranging from economic
governance to developments in the life sciences and beyond, and publishes
major new work on current issues confronting progressive politics throughout
Europe and North America, Australasia and the Pacific Rim.
- Monthly Review: Monthly Review takes
a Marxist approach to political economy and history. Widely appreciated for
its unique blend of scholarship and activism, dedication to historical understanding,
and readability, Monthly Review's independent vision of socialism and critical
honesty make it an indispensable tool for understanding global capitalism
and the prospects for change.
- New Political
Economy: This journal aims to create a forum for work which seeks to bridge
past empirical and conceptual divides. The emphasis is on exploratory and
innovative work which draws on different disciplines and which addresses core
issues in the emerging research agenda. NPE brings together four key literatures:
comparative political economy, the political economy of the environment, the
political economy of development, and international political economy.
in Political Economy: RPE is founded on understanding society as a unity
of economic, political and ideological levels in contradiction, with the class
structure of the economy being basic to such understanding. It is therefore
consistent with classical Marxism. Articles not explicitly Marxist in orientation
are also published.
- Rethinking Marxism:
aims to stimulate interest in and debate over the explanatory power and social
consequences of Marxian economic, cultural, and social analysis. To that end,
we publish studies that seek to discuss, elaborate, and/or extend Marxian
theory. Our concerns include theoretical and philosophical (methodological
and epistemological) matters as well as more concrete empirical analyses—all
work that leads to the further development of distinctively Marxian discourses.
We encourage contributions from people in many disciplines and from a wide
range of perspectives. We are also interested in expanding the diversity of
styles for producing and presenting Marxian discourses.
- Review of Radical Political
Economics: RRPE encourages articles from all perspectives within a broad
definition of radical political economics. If an article is within this general
framework, the editors of the RRPE are committed to judging it on its merits
and scholarship, not in terms of the political point-of-view of the author(s).
and Society: publishes original studies in political economy and the economic
analysis of contemporary societies; social and political theory; history,
labor, ethnic and women's studies; aesthetics, literature and the arts. While
S & S does not adhere to any particular school of interpretation within
Marxism, the editors do encourage respectful attention to the entire Marxist
tradition, as well as to cutting-edge tools and concepts from present-day
social science. Through both general issues and issues devoted to particular
topics, the journal provides serious analysis of the contemporary human condition
and visions of social alternatives, as well as contributing to the ongoing
critical reexamination and redevelopment of the Marxist tradition.
Political Economy (general)
- Cambridge Journal of Economics:
The Cambridge Journal of Economics, founded in 1977 in the traditions of Marx,
Keynes, Kalecki, Joan Robinson and Kaldor, provides a forum for theoretical,
applied, policy and methodological research into social and economic issues.
- Contributions to Political Economy:
provides a forum for the academic discussion of original ideas and arguments
drawn from important critical traditions in economic analysis. Articles fall
broadly within the lines of thought associated with the work of the Classical
political economists: Marx, Keynes, and Sraffa. While the majority of articles
are theoretical and historical in emphasis, the journal welcomes articles
of a more applied character.
- International Papers in Political Economy: IPPE publishes longer
articles (15,000 words) in the broad area of political economy. Editors: Philip
Arestis and Malcolm Sawyer.
Review of Applied Economics: IRAE publishes articles in the area of applied,
policy-oriented economics. It adopts a broadly left-of-centre perspective
on economic policy, but within that perspective it is not identified with
any specific theoretical or political position. It encourages articles dealing
with policy issues and adopting theoretical positions on current issues which
are neglected ion mainstream journals.
- Journal of Australian Political Economy:
JAPE provides an alternative voice on economic analysis and policy from a
political economy perspective. It focuses especially, but not exclusively,
on issues pertinent to Australia. JAPE aims for compromise between scholarly
standards and broader accessibility.
- New Left Review: world politics
and the global economy; state powers and protest movements; contemporary social
theory; history and philosophy; cinema and literature; heterodox art and aesthetics.
It stands resolutely opposed to Third Way pieties and neoliberal prescriptions,
combating capital's current apologists with sharp and scholarly analysis,
internationalist critique, polemic and experiential prose.
- New Political
Economy: a multi-disciplinary academic journal seeking to bridge past
empirical and conceptual divides to cast light on the new world order.
- Review of African Political Economy:

agrarian, popular and democratic struggles; class, gender and social justice.
of Black Political Economy: examines issues related to the economic status
of African-American and Third World peoples. It identifies and analyzes policy
prescriptions designed to reduce racial economic inequality. The journal is
devoted to appraising public and private policies for their ability to advance
economic opportunities without regard to their theoretical or ideological
- Review of
International Political Economy: an international journal which adopts
a global and interdisciplinary approach. In exploring international trade,
finance, production and consumption in conjunction with issues of culture,
identity, gender and ecology, RIPE promotes a critical engagement with the
changing nature of state and society. Emphasis is placed on emerging debates
concerning the direction of contemporary globalization and altered structures
of international governance and regulation. The journal represents a convergence
between political economists, geographers, sociologists, and international
relations scholars and is committed to the publication of work that is innovative,
exploratory and polemical. The journal encourages submissions that seek to
situate these substantive concerns in broader debates on the changing nature
of political economy and the development of a transdisciplinary social science.
RIPE is affiliated with the European Association for Evolutionary Political
Economy (EAEPE) and International Political Economy section of the International
of Political Economy: The Review of Political Economy welcomes constructive
and critical contributions in all areas of political economy, including the
Post Keynesian, Sraffian, Marxian, Austrian and Institutionalist traditions.
The Review publishes both theoretical and empirical research,and is also open
to submissions in methodology, economic history and the history of economic
thought that cast light on issues of contemporary relevance in political economy.
The Review has a European orientation.
- Studies in Political Economy:
an interdisciplinary journal committed to the publication of original work
in the various traditions of socialist political economy. Researchers and
analysts within these traditions seek to understand how political, economic
and cultural processes and struggles interact to shape and reshape the conditions
of people's lives. SPE is especially interested in work by, for and about
Canadians, but it aims to be an international journal. It welcomes contributions
in every field of political economy and within all the traditions of socialist
scholarship, including those which question established paradigms.
Post Keynesian Economics
Journal of Social Economics: Increasing economic interaction, allied to
the social and political changes evident in many parts of the world, has created
a need for more sophisticated understanding of the social, political and cultural
influences which govern our societies. The International Journal of Social
Economics provides its readers with a unique forum for the exchange and sharing
of information in this complex area. Philosophical discussions of research
findings combine with commentary on international developments in social economics
to make a genuinely valuable contribution to current understanding of the
subject and the growth of new ideas.
- Journal of Socio-Economics: an interdisciplinary
journal aimed toward academicians, both inside and outside the economics discipline,
and to practitioners in business,government and nonprofit organizations. The
two goals of The Journal are to: 1. further knowledge of real economic phenomena
by integrating psychological and sociological variables into economic analysis
and 2. promote interdisciplinary research by academicians and practitioners
dealing in economics, the behavioral sciences, and public policy. The JOURNAL
is particularly interested in articles which reflect the visions of the Society
for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE); the Society for the Advancement
of Behavioral Economics (SABE); and the Law and Socio-Economics Section of
The Association of American Law Schools (AALS).
- Review of Social Economy:
RoSE is concerned with the normative dimensions of economics and, more generally,
social-economic issues. It is open to non-traditional approaches.
Journals with some heterodox content (General)
Economic Journal: publishes papers, written from every perspective, in
all areas of economics. It welcomes manuscripts that are methodological and
philosophical as well as empirical and theoretical. Readability and general
interest are major factors in publication decision.
- Growth and
Change: A Journal of Urban and Regional Policy: a forum for scholarly
research on regional and urban policy making and its empirical foundations.
It is interdisciplinary in scope and seeks both theoretical and empirical
investigations dealing with facets of regional and urban economic development
in both domestic and international contexts. Contributions which reflect environmental
concerns and the international implications of regional and urban development
are especially encouraged.
Review of Applied Economics: devoted to the practical applications of
economic ideas. Applied economics is widely interpreted to embrace empirical
work and the application of economics to the evaluation and development of
economic policies. The interaction between empirical work and economic policy
is an important feature of the journal. Although the International Review
of Applied Economics associates itself broadly with the non-neo-classical
tradition, it is does not identify itself with any specific theoretical or
- Intervention Journal of Economics:
provides a forum for heterodox approaches - heterodox in the sense of a demarcation
from the prevailing mainstream in economics. The aims of such a forum are
mutual exchange and the discussion of different perspectives from different
economic schools. The journal therefore is not committed to a single paradigm.
Editors, scientific board and authors rather share a critical position towards
the current mainstream.
of Economic Behavior and Organization: devoted to theoretical and empirical
research concerning economic decision, organization and behavior and to economic
change in all its aspects. Its specific purposes are to foster an improved
understanding of how human cognitive, computational and informational characteristics
influence the working of economic organizations and market economies and how
an economy's structural features lead to various types of micro and macro
behavior, to changing patterns of development and to institutional evolution.
Research with these purposes that explore the interrelations of economics
with other disciplines such as biology, psychology, law, anthropology, sociology
and mathematics is particularly welcome. The journal is eclectic as to research
method; systematic observation and careful description, simulation modeling
and mathematical analysis are all within its purview. Empirical work, including
controlled laboratory experimentation, that probes close to the core of the
issues in theoretical dispute is encouraged.
- Journal of Economic Psychology:
presents research that will improve understanding of behavioral, especially
socio-psychological, aspects of economic phenomena and processes. The Journal
seeks to be a channel for the increased interest in using behavioral science
methods for the study of economic behavior, and so to contribute to better
solutions of societal problems, by stimulating new approaches and new theorizing
about economic affairs. Economic psychology as a discipline studies the psychological
mechanisms that underlie consumption and other economic behavior. It deals
with preferences, choices, decisions, and factors influencing these, as well
as the consequences of decisions and choices with respect to the satisfaction
of needs. This includes the impact of external economic phenomena upon human
behavior and well-being. Studies in economic psychology may relate to different
levels of aggregation, from the household and the individual consumer to the
macro level of whole nations. Economic behavior in connection with inflation,
unemployment, taxation, economic development, as well as consumer information
and economic behavior in the market place are thus the major fields of interest.
- Journal of Income Distribution:
aims to facilitate communication and discussion of research in the field of
social economics and particularly in the sphere of the distribution of income
and wealth. Its intention is to provide an international forum for the dissemination
of the results of scholarly work in this field. It offers empirical research
and theoretical perspectives from all branches of the social sciences, representing
all points of view within economics.
a journal of analytical economics that provides an international forum for
debate among competing theories and research programs, going beyond the traditional
emphasis on market equilibrium/disequilibrium by focusing on economic process
in real time, addressing the role of social institutions, technical change
and income distribution, emphasizing the behavioural foundations of economics
and from other disciplines, and exploring methodological innovations in economics
and related disciplines. The journal is open to empirical contributions related
to the above themes.
- Journal of World-Systems Research:
JWSR is an electronic journal dedicated to scholarly research on the modern
world-system and earlier, smaller intersocietal networks. It is intentionally
interdisciplinary in focus.
Journals with some heterodox content (Development)
and Change: covers a broad range of topics and publishes articles from
all the social sciences and all intellectual persuasions concerned with development.
With a mix of regular and special theme issues, Development and Change is
devoted to the critical analysis and discussion of the complete spectrum of
- World Development:
a multi-disciplinary monthly journal of development studies. It seeks
to explore ways of improving standards of living, and the human condition
generally, by examining potential solutions to problems such as: poverty,
unemployment, malnutrition, disease, illiteracy, lack of shelter, environmental
degradation, inadequate scientific and technological resources, trade and
payments imbalances, international debt, gender and ethnic discrimination,
violation of human rights, militarism and civil conflict, and lack of popular
participation in economic and political life.
Journals with some heterodox content (History and History
and Philosophy: The disciplines of economics and philosophy each possess
their own special analytical methods, whose combination is powerful and fruitful.
Each discipline can be enriched by the other. Economics and Philosophy aims
to promote their mutual enrichment by publishing articles and book reviews
in all areas linking these subjects. Topics include the methodology and epistemology
of economics, the foundations of decision theory and game theory, the nature
of rational choice in general, historical work on economics with a philosophical
purpose, ethical issues in economics, the use of economic techniques in ethical
theory, and many other subjects.
Journal of the History of Economic Thought: entirely pluralist and non-partisan
with regard to subjects and methodologies - it does not subscribe to any particular
current of thought, nor relate to any one geographic zone.
- History of Economics
Review: published by the History of Economics Thought Society of Australia.
- History of Political Economy:
each issue contains original research on the development of economic thought,
the historical background behind major figures in the history of economics,
the interpretation of economic theories, and the methodologies available to
historians of economic theory.
of Economic Methodology: JEM aims to provide a forum for high quality
and exciting articles which reflect the increasing interest in economic methodology.
The Journal does not endorse or promote any single methodological position.
It takes a broad view of methodology and addresses to a wide range of diverse
of the History of Economic Thought: promotes interest in and inquiry into
the history of economics and related parts of intellectual history, facilitates
communication and discourse among scholars working in the field of the history
of economics, and disseminates knowledge about the history of economics. JHET
therefore encourages and makes available research in the fields of history
of economic thought and the history of economic methodology.
