About the Journal
Focus and Scope
Economics and Business Letters is an open access journal that publishes both theoretical and empirical quality original papers in all economics and business fields. In addition, relevant discussions on current policy issues will be considered for the Policy Watch section. As general strategy of EBL, the journal will launch calls for papers for special issues on topics of interest, generally with invited guest editors. The maximum length of the letters is limited to 2,500 words.
Abbreviated journal title: Econ Bus Lett
Peer Review Process
Quality originals will be pre-screened by the Editorial Board and then articles will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind revision process by, at least, two experts in the field of the paper. An editorial decision (accept, minor changes, reject) will be made normally within 12 weeks from reception. No major revision will be considered.
