Aims & Scope

The Forum for Social Economics is an international journal sponsored by the Association for Social Economics.

For 35 years the Forum has published high quality peer-reviewed papers. The primary focus of the Forum is on applying social economic analysis to practical policy issues and/or the implications of alternative policy perspectives encompassing the social economy.

The Forum is a pluralistic journal publishing work that addresses economic issues within wider ethical, cultural or natural environmental contexts, and is sympathetic to papers that transcend established disciplinary boundaries. Papers should make a contribution to past or current socioeconomic issues that have contemporary relevance to economists, social scientists, policy makers and business.

The journal welcomes stimulating original articles that are clearly written and draw upon contemporary policy-related research. Preference is given to non-technical articles of topical and historical interest that will appeal to a wide range of readers. The journal is also interested in serving as an avenue for issues regarding teaching economics, in particular teaching approaches to social and heterodox economics.

The Forum invites graduate students to submit research papers. Proof of graduate student status should be provided with the submission. While the students’ papers will go through the regular review process and be held to the same standards for acceptance as other submissions, the panel of reviewers will serve a mentoring role to advise the student to strengthen the paper.
