Aims & Scope


Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) seeks high quality short papers in all topics in economic theory and mathematical economics. In addition, there is a section for work-in-progress, limited to one page.

All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous and fair peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The journal publishes original papers including but not limited to the following fields:


  • · Econometric Theory
  • · Experimental and Behavioral Economics
  • · Macroeconomic Theory
  • · Mathematical Economics
  • · Mathematical Finance
  • · Microeconomic Theory

  • We are also interested in: 1) Short reports — 2-5 page papers where an author can present either preliminary data or an idea with theoretical background but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper; 2) Book reviews — Comments and critiques.
