Call for papers

On behalf of the editorial team of the Journal of Public Finance and Public Choice, we are delighted to be inviting papers examining topics from across the journal's scope for submission.

About the journal

The Journal of Public Finance and Public Choice (JPFPC) was founded in 1983 by Professor Domenico da Empoli and relaunched in 2018 in partnership with Bristol University Press.

With an outstanding, international editorial board, JPFPC will be revitalized in print and online while maintaining its commitment to publishing high quality, peer-reviewed research.

JPFPC is unique in the international landscape of public economics journals, because it is committed to explicitly advancing knowledge in both public finance and public choice, reflecting an inclusive approach. To this end, it welcomes submissions from economics, as well as from cognate disciplines (geography, law, political science, sociology), that contribute to our understanding of the public economy and its broader constitutional, legal and political economy matrix.

Areas of interest for submissions include:

  • Corruption
  • Economics of the arts
  • Experimental and behavioural political economy
  • Laboratory federalism
  • New economy challenges
  • Policy experimentation
  • Public economic organization theory
  • Public institutional analysis
  • Public policy evaluation
  • Tax evasion
  • Tax reform
  • Transparency in public administration
