Special issues are a collection of papers on a specific topic. They are compiled by editors who are responsible for the selection of contributions to a special issue. Note that all special issue papers can also be found as ordinary contributions in the Economics Discussion Paper series or in economics.
Economics is a general interest journal. By clustering contributions on similar topics in our topic list, we want to provide a quick link to contributions in different fields of interest. The topic list is permanently updated and new topics will be added after a significant number of contributions has been published. The topics contain all contributions—journal articles as well as discussion papers—that fit into their subject area.
