About the Journal


Estudios de Economía is published, since 1973, two times a year by the Department of Economics at the University of Chile. Its purpose is to publish empirical as well as theoretical papers in every field of Economics. 

As part of our editorial policy, an answer regarding the status of a paper will not exceed two months from its reception. If that were not the case, the authors are free to send their paper for consideration for publication elsewhere.  The average time between reception and publication is one year, but this applies only for the accepted articles. The rejection rate of Estudios de Economía is nearly 95%.

Double-Blind Peer Review Policy

This journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. 

The journal has the collaboration of external evaluators who are not parte of its Editorial Board nor the publishing institution.
