Call for Papers and Best Paper Awards

Elsevier is proud to announce The Journal of Government and Economics (JGE).

The Journal of Government and Economics (JGE) is an economics journal specializing in the study of the relationship between the government and the market economy. The government has been a key player in modern economies and its behavior has been one of the most important factors in the performance of such economies. The journal views the government as a key player—either as a promoter and stakeholder or as an impediment to the market economy—and focuses on the role of government in economic development. The journal aims to promote academic research on the role, incentives, and behavior of government in the market economy.

JGE welcomes submissions of both theoretical and empirical papers in the field of Government and Economics. Particular attention will be paid to evidence-based studies.

JGE seeks prompt publication of high-quality papers. First responses are either a reject or a "conditional accept" limited to expositional changes. We will reach editorial decisions within two months of submission.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
 Government behavior and enterprise development
 Government behavior and market cultivation
 Government governance ability and macroeconomic regulation
 Government behavior and land supply and transfer
 Government incentive and globalization
 Government behavior and savings
 Government functions and public goods
 Fiscal revenue and government behavior
 Government and state-owned enterprises
