The World Economics Association (WEA) was launched on May 16, 2011. It fills a gap in the international community of economists -- the absence of a professional organization which is truly international and pluralist. The American Economic Association and other nationally based organizations provide broad associations mainly for their country’s economists. The WEA will do the same for the world's community of economists, while promoting a pluralism of approaches to economic analysis.
To this end, the WEA will initially publish online three quarterly journals and host online conferences. Online subscriptions are free to members (a fee will be charged for print copies). The anticipated size of the WEA’s membership means that its journals will have one of the largest readerships of any in the world.
The WEA will publish the World Economics Journal, Economic Thought and the Real World Economics Review. For detailed information, including submission procedures, on each journal, click on its title.
