For almost a decade, Comparative Advantage has published incredible research papers from undergraduate students across the globe, serving as a medium to amplify the voices of some of the world’s brightest minds. Starting this year, we are attempting to broaden our publication’s impact by venturing into new territory: the realm of commentaries.
Especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, economic analysis is more important than ever. While empirical research helps drive the policy conversation, it is undeniable that it lacks a certain human element. With this in mind, our publication will now be accepting commentary pieces about modern economic issues for a new “Commentary” section of our website. These submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis and will be published throughout the year. Please see the “Submit” section of our website for more information.
Please also keep in mind that an annual edition of our research journal will be published as usual. The submission requirements for these papers have not changed and are still explained in detail in the “Submit” section of our website. The deadline for our upcoming Winter 2021-22 edition of the journal is November 15, 2021.
With a new mission, we have adopted a new name: the Stanford Economic Review. As we are now publishing both commentaries and research papers, we believe this name better captures the essence of what we hope to accomplish this year and beyond.
We look forward to reviewing your commentaries and papers, and we are thrilled to get the year started!
