Journals

Pitt economics faculty members are editors of three prestigious journals:

Economic Inquiry

Economic Inquiry is widely regarded as one of the top scholarly journals in its field. Besides containing research on all economics topic areas, the journal has a principal objective of making each article understandable to economists who are not necessarily specialists in the article's topic area. Nine Nobel laureates are among Economic Inquiry's long list of prestigious authors.

The Journal of Comparative Economics

The Journal of Comparative Economics is devoted to the analysis and study of contemporary, historical, and hypothetical economic systems. Such analyses involve comparisons of the performance of different economic systems or subsystems, studies linking outcomes to system characteristics in one economy, and investigations of the origin and evolution of one or more economic systems. Empirical, theoretical, and institutional approaches are also published.

Journal of Public Economics

The Journal of Public Economics is the leading journal in public economics. The aim of the journal is to encourage original scientific contributions on the problems of public economics, with particular emphasis on the application of modern economic theory and methods of quantitative analysis. It provides a forum for discussion of public policy of interest to an international readership.
