European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention

The European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention (EJEEP) is a peer-reviewed journal which serves as a forum for studies in macroeconomic theory, economic institutions and economic policies. The recent financial and economic crises have again demonstrated the inadequacy of orthodox economics based on neoclassical foundations, both in explaining the causes of the crises and in suggesting the appropriate economic policy responses. Therefore, the managing editors invite contributions acknowledging the pluralism of research approaches in economics. In particular they aim at productive debates involving one or more variants of heterodox approaches. The managing editors contend that a wide variety of institutional and social factors shape economic life and economic processes. Only a careful study and integration of such factors into economics will lead to theoretical progress and to adequate economic policy recommendations. The submission of both theoretical and empirical work is encouraged.

The roots of the EJEEP go back to 2004, when the first issue of Intervention. Journal of Economics was published. In 2008 the journal was re-launched as Intervention. European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies. With the change of the publisher in 2013 it has since become the European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention (EJEEP).
