Indian Journal of Economics was established by Prof.
H. Stanley Jevons of the Department
of Economics, University of Allahabad. The first Issue
of the Journal, appeared in January, 1916.
The Journal is published with the three-fold object
of providing a medium for the publication of articles
on economic problems by authors of academic standing
or authoritative positions, furnishing a convenient
and compact vehicle for publication of original investigations
and disseminating information about the economic activities
of India and other countries. Its scope has been generally
extended since then so as to cover every branch of economic
science. During the past 90 years, the Journal has succeeded
in developing many debates on various aspects of Economic
Theory and Policy.
Since 1949 the Indian Journal of Economics disassociated itself with the Indian Economic Association but
has continued with its uninterrupted publication till
date, and has wide national and international circulations.
The articles and findings received for publication are
regularly reviewed by experts before being accepted
for publication. The Authors of accepted Papers receive
20 Reprints of their Paper, free of cost. The Journal
also publishes Book Reviews.
The Indian Journal of Economics is Registered with the
Registrar, News Papers of India (Regd. No. RN.28648/75)
and its ISSN is 0019-5170.
The Journal encourages exchange with other professional
Journals of Economics on long term basis.
