The Finnish Economic Papers is an anonymously reviewed journal publishing both theoretical and empirical contributions in all fields of economics. The Finnish Economic Papers is published biannually by the Finnish Economic Association and the specific purpose of the Finnish Economic Papers is to foster research on small economies.

The Finnish Economic Papers relies on the voluntary professional service of our referees whose identities are treated confidentially. The anonymity of the author is also preserved in most cases. We try to provide reviews of the manuscripts within three months.
