Berkeley Economic Review Invitation

Berkeley Economic Review-- the premier undergraduate economics journal at the University of California, Berkeley-- is currently accepting submissions for its eighth volume.

Our journal is seeking essays, op-eds, theses and research papers from undergraduate students across the U.S. and internationally. We offer a great opportunity for students to publish their work in a professional and academic journal. Not only is it a chance to share your research with the larger economic community, but having published scholarly work is also helpful if you’re interested in applying graduate schools in the future..

So if you have completed an excellent paper or honours thesis, we strongly encourage you to submit to our journal. Please limit essays or op-eds to a maximum of five pages single spaced, however, there is no maximum for theses or original research papers. Submissions must be written in English or translated into English by the original author. All pieces will be considered for our 2019 fall volume.
