The American Economic Review is a peer-reviewed academic journal of economics publishing twelve (formerly seven) issues annually by the American Economic Association. First published in 1911, it is considered one of the most prestigious journals in the field.[1][2][3] The current editor-in-chief is Pinelopi Koujianou Goldberg (Yale University). The previous editor was Robert Moffitt. The journal is based in Pittsburgh.[4]

The May issue of the American Economic Review each year is known as "Papers and Proceedings". Selected papers and discussions of papers presented at the Annual Meetings of the American Economic Association are published along with reports of officers, committees, and representatives.

In 2004, the American Economic Review began requiring "data and code sufficient to permit replication" of a paper's results, which is then posted on the journal's website. Exceptions are made for proprietary data.[5]

Notable papers[edit]

In 2011 a "Top 20 Committee," consisting of Kenneth Arrow, Douglas Bernheim, Martin Feldstein, Daniel McFadden, James M. Poterba, and Robert Solow, selected the following twenty articles to be the most important ones to appear in the journal:[6]

Thirteen of those authors have received the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences.

The journal can be accessed online via JSTOR. In both 2006 and 2007, it was the most widely viewed journal of all the 775 journals in JSTOR.[7]
