About the Journal

The European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention (EJEEP) is a double blind peer-reviewed journal which serves as a forum for studies in macroeconomic theory, economic institutions and economic policies. The managing editors aim for productive debates involving one or more variants of heterodox economics, and invite contributions acknowledging the pluralism of research approaches. The submission of both theoretical and empirical work is encouraged. The managing editors contend that a wide variety of institutional and social factors shape economic life and economic processes. Only a careful study and integration of such factors into economics will lead to theoretical progress and to competent economic policy recommendations. This was clearly demonstrated by the inadequacy of orthodox economics, based on neoclassical foundations, to provide suitable explanations and responses to recent financial and economic crises.

The roots of the EJEEP go back to 2004, when the first issue of Intervention. Journal of Economics was published. In 2008 the journal was re-launched as Intervention. European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies. With the change of publisher to Edward Elgar Publishing in 2013 it has since become the European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention (EJEEP).

From 2023, EJEEP is published as a scholar-led Diamond Open Access journal in cooperation with Open Library Economics (OLEcon), an initiative of ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics. Readers and authors do not have to pay any fees. ZBW is the main funder for the production costs for EJEEP.
