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. Accepted papers will immediately appear online 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 either present an idea with theoretical background but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper or preliminary data; 2) Book Reviews – Comments and critiques.
