Manuscripts submitted for publication should be sent by one of two methods:

  1. By e-mail to the Editor: editor (at) Only documents in standard pdf or Microsoft Word format should be sent.

  2. By mail to the Editor Kari Heimonen, Finnish Economic Papers, Jyväskylä University School of Business and Economics, P.O. Box 35, FI-40014 University of Jyväskylä, Finland. Four copies that are not returned should be sent.

Submission of a paper will be regarded as implying that it contains original unpublished work and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere.

Manuscripts should be in English. It is the responsibility of the author to ensure that the typescript is correct in style, syntax and spelling. Manuscripts will be considered in any form, but manuscripts longer than 50 pages are rarely accepted for publication. The refereeing process will be accelerated, if the manuscripts are double-spaced and the authorship is identified only on a removable cover page. If manuscripts are submitted electronically, they should be divided into two separate files: (i) the title page including the title of the paper, the full names of the authors and contact information; (ii) the manuscript with the title of the paper, abstract, keywords and JEL codes on the first page.

Accepted Articles

Authors of articles accepted for publication will be expected to provide a final copy in Microsoft Word format (.doc) or Scientific WorkPlace/Latex format(.tex), conforming to the general style of the Finnish Economic Papers.

References should be listed at the end of the article. Some examples can be seen below (for more examples, please refer to past issues of the journal). References in the text to this list should be made by putting the year in parentheses, e.g. Smith (1776).

When the paper is divided into sections, Arabic numerals should be used in numbering the sections.

Footnotes and formulae should be numbered consecutively throughout the text. Equation numbers should be given on the left hand side of the page. Acknowledgements should be denoted with an asterix and located as the first footnote.

Tables and figures should be clearly labelled and situated near the text to which they relate. The labels of the figures should be below the figure and the labels of the tables above the table. Number each figure and table in the order in which it is to appear.

In general the accepted articles should not be longer than 30 typewritten pages including references, figures and tables. An abstract not exceeding 100 words with the Journal of Economic Literature classification numbers should be included.
