Journals

The Association for Social Economics publishes two Journals - the Review of Social Economy and the Forum for Social Economics.  Membership in the Association includes subscriptions to both of these journals AND on-line links to previously published volumns of each journal.  Members can download articles from these journals free of charge.

 

Review of Social Economy

For over sixty-five  years the Review of Social Economy has published high quality peer-reviewed work on the many relationships between social values and economics.

The field of social economics discusses how the economy and social justice relate, and what this implies for economic theory and policy.  Papers published range from conceptual work on aligning economic institutions and policies with given ethical principles, to theoretical representations of individual behavior that allow for both self-interested and 'pro-social' motives and to original empirical work on persistent social issues such as poverty, inequality, and discrimination.

The Review is a journal specialized in, and a premier outlet for, scholarly research at the intersection of social values and economics, and encourages researchers engaged in high-quality work in these areas.  The Review provides a platform for established social-economics research, but also for research from other branches of economics and the social sciences, when the goal of developing better understandings of the role of social values in economic life is pursued.

 

Forum for Social Economics

For 35 years the Forum has published high quality peer-reviewed papers. The primary focus of the Forum is on applying social economic analysis to practical policy issues and/or the implications of alternative policy perspectives encompassing the social economy.

The Forum is a pluralistic journal publishing work that addresses economic issues within wider ethical, cultural or natural environmental contexts, and is sympathetic to papers that transcend established disciplinary boundaries. Papers should make a contribution to past or current socioeconomic issues that have contemporary relevance to economists, social scientists, policy makers and business.
