Call for Papers - Covid Economics, Vetted and Real-Time Papers

This call for papers is open to all researchers, not just those who are affiliated with CEPR. If you have an existing account with CEPR, please scroll down in order to submit a paper. If you do not currently have a CEPR profile, please create one at https://portal.cepr.org/user/register and then scroll down. If you have any trouble, don't hesitate to email covidecon@cepr.org.

CEPR has launched a new online (lightly) peer-reviewed publication to disseminate emerging scholarly work on the Covid-19 epidemic. Very quickly after the onset of the epidemic, a large number of policy papers were produced by economic scholars, many of which have appeared on VoxEU. This has been enormously helpful to improve our understanding of policy options. The next step requires more formal investigations, based on explicit theory and/or empirical evidence. This is what Covid Economics: Vetted and Real-Time Papers aims to provide.

Submissions will be promptly evaluated by the Editorial Board, over a maximum of 5 days, on an accept/reject basis, i.e. no resubmission and no referee report. When a sufficient number of papers (4-6) are accepted, an issue of the Covid Economics will be published online by CEPR Press. Thus the frequency of the review will be determined endogenously. We consider this to be a preprint, which is common in medicine where results have to be out quickly as input into the debate; it will still be possible to submit papers to a traditional journal at a later date.

We are looking for reasonably short papers (approx. 5000 words, though this is not a requirement; submissions could be longer or shorter than this) that make a clear contribution.

Charles Wyplosz, Graduate Institute Geneva and CEPR
