Authors are invited to submit articles that are concerned with economic and social policy issues in or affecting Europe.

A vast range of economic research creates input for economic policy at the national and EU levels. Intereconomics aims at stimulating debates on economic policy issues and offers a platform for the publication of policy relevant aspects of economic research. It provides up-to-date information for policymakers and supports the exchange of ideas for the improvement of policy approaches.

  • Forum: Policy debates on highly topical themes based on short contributions from researchers, stakeholders and experts from industry and politics (2500-4000 words per contribution, mainly by invitation)
  • Articles: Papers concerned with economic policy issues and trends; papers should be unpublished and based on empirical research (3000-5000 words)
