OECD Journal: Journal of Business Cycle Measurement and Analysis

Call for Papers

Notes for Authors

Researchers in the field of business cycle measurement and analysis are encouraged to submit their papers to the Editor-in-Chief ([email protected]). Manuscripts to be considered for publication must be in English and should be submitted as a single PDF file. The first page must include the title of the paper and the corresponding author's contact details. After this page, the manuscript has to be anonymous. The second page should include the title, an abstract of about 150 to 300 words, up to six key words and up to three JEL classification codes. Submission of a paper implies that it represents original unpublished work and that it is not submitted for publication elsewhere.

All articles submitted to the Editor-in-Chief will undergo a double blind referee process. Under the heading “Report” additional contributions, including topics such as sample design, data collection and validation, dissemination and evaluation of survey results, are published. Reports are reviewed by members of the Editorial Board.

The editorial decision will be communicated to the corresponding author.

Manuscripts are accepted for publication under the condition that they are subsequently delivered electronically in the format specified by the publisher. In particular, the graphics in the paper should be optimised for a greyscale publication. Moreover, the JBCMA will publish papers only if the data used in the analysis are clearly documented and readily available to any researcher for purposes of replication. Authors of accepted papers that contain empirical work, simulations, or experimental work must provide the data, programs, and other details of the computations sufficient to permit replication. The Editor-in-Chief should be notified at the time of submission if the requirements above cannot be met.

Translation of the abstract into French is provided by OECD Translation Services.

Correspondence about editorial matters should be addressed to the JBCMA, Editor-in-Chief, Michael Graff, KOF Swiss Economic Institute, ETH Zurich, Weinbergstrasse 35, 8092, Zurich, Switzerland ([email protected]).
