Aims and scope

For over seventy years, the Review of Social Economy has published high-quality peer-reviewed work on the many relationships between social values and economics.
The field of social economics discusses how the economy and social justice relate, and what this implies for economic theory and policy. Papers published range from conceptual work on aligning economic institutions and policies with given ethical principles, to theoretical representations of individual behaviour that allow for both self-interested and 'pro-social' motives, and to original empirical work on persistent social issues such as poverty, inequality, and discrimination.
In promoting discourse on social-economic themes, and unifying and invigorating scholarship around them, the journal is centrally concerned with these core research areas. The Review is a journal specialized in and a premier outlet for scholarly research at the intersection of social values and economics, and encourages researchers engaged in high-quality work in these areas. Implications for social programs and policies may be discussed in regular articles or in a Speakers' Corner contribution.
The Review provides a platform for established social-economics research, but also for research from other branches of economics and the social sciences, when the goal of developing better understandings of the role of social values in economic life is pursued. 
Peer Review Policy:
All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by two anonymous referees.
