Journal of African Economies

Before the advent of the Journal of African Economies (JAE) in 1992, high-quality economic research on Africa was scattered over many diverse publications. In the JAE, this important area of research now has its own vehicle to carry rigorous economic analysis, focused entirely on Africa, for Africans and anyone interested in the continent – be they consultants, policymakers, academics, traders, financiers, development agents or aid workers.

Administered at the CSAE, the JAE is published by Oxford University Press (OUP) and has an international network of Managing and Associate Editors and referees. Details of the journal, with subscription & advertising information, can be found on OUP's JAE web pages. OUP also offers a free sample copy online, or a printed copy can be ordered by emailing

The Journal has recently moved online submissions to Manuscript Central at
