Three decades of publishing research in population economics

By: Brown, Alessio J.G. (UNU‐MERIT) ; Zimmermann, Klaus F. (UNU-MERIT, and Harvard University)
The Journal of Population Economics is celebrating its thirtieth birthday. When the first issue was published, population economics was non-existent as a field. Hence, the aim has been to provide a high quality outlet to publishing excellent theoretical and applied research in all areas of population economics. The article summarises key developments in the Journal’s editorial process, thematic orientation, international reach and successes. Furthermore, we discuss the benefits of working papers in economics and investigate the impacts of the present working paper culture on journal citations. Finally, we try to identify the citation impacts in the Journal itself. The Journal of Population Economics has established itself as the leader in its field. Publishing in working papers and in the Journal seem to be complementary activities.
Keywords: Demographical economics, population economics, working papers, Kuznets prize, citation impacts
