Editor's Note

Editor's Note ob Porter and I are pleased to present the first issue of AEJ Micro. The journal will publish papers focusing on microeconomic theory, industrial organization, and the microeconomic aspects of international trade, political economy and finance. We will publish theoretical work as well as both empirical and experimental work with a theoretical framework. We have assembled an outstanding board of editors, the names of whom are on the inside front cover of this issue. In addition to them, Susan Athey served as coeditor for a period at the inception of the journal, and her help is gratefully acknowledged. With their assistance we have put together this first issue of the journal. The range and quality of the papers, along with the composition of the board, convey what the journal aspires to. The accepted papers that will be published in subsequent issues can be found on the AEJ Micro Web page. From the beginning, our aim has been to handle papers efficiently, with quick turnaround and few rounds of review before acceptance. So far we have been successful. We have had approximately 150 submissions so far, and the average time to first decision is less than two-and-a-half months, and the average time to second decision on revisions is less than two months. More detailed statistics regarding submissions can be found on page 268. In addition to standard research articles, we will periodically publish articles that examine the methodology by which economics is done. The second issue of this journal will publish an article on the role of neuroeconomics in economic research by Doug Bernheim, with comments by Faruk Gul and Wolfgang Pesendorfer, and Aldo Rustichini, and Joel Sobel. These articles and comments will be refereed, as all articles are. Our belief is that a deeper understanding of research techniques will change the way economists think and do economics. In summary, AEJ Micro is off to an exciting start. We encourage you to join us.

Abstract

ob Porter and I are pleased to present the first issue of AEJ Micro. The journal will publish papers focusing on microeconomic theory, industrial organization, and the microeconomic aspects of international trade, political economy and finance. We will publish theoretical work as well as both empirical and experimental work with a theoretical framework. We have assembled an outstanding board of editors, the names of whom are on the inside front cover of this issue. In addition to them, Susan Athey served as coeditor for a period at the inception of the journal, and her help is gratefully acknowledged. With their assistance we have put together this first issue of the journal. The range and quality of the papers, along with the composition of the board, convey what the journal aspires to. The accepted papers that will be published in subsequent issues can be found on the AEJ Micro Web page. From the beginning, our aim has been to handle papers efficiently, with quick turnaround and few rounds of review before acceptance. So far we have been successful. We have had approximately 150 submissions so far, and the average time to first decision is less than two-and-a-half months, and the average time to second decision on revisions is less than two months. More detailed statistics regarding submissions can be found on page 268. In addition to standard research articles, we will periodically publish articles that examine the methodology by which economics is done. The second issue of this journal will publish an article on the role of neuroeconomics in economic research by Doug Bernheim, with comments by Faruk Gul and Wolfgang Pesendorfer, and Aldo Rustichini, and Joel Sobel. These articles and comments will be refereed, as all articles are. Our belief is that a deeper understanding of research techniques will change the way economists think and do economics.
