Économie et Prévision is a scientific journal that publishes French-written studies by specialists in quantitative methods of applied economy originating from multiple sources (academic researchers, economists from French, non-French, or international economic administrations . . .). Its editorial scope covers a wide range of topics, including macroeconomic and microeconomic questions, international issues, environmental studies, etc. Submissions presenting a significant methodological contribution to the economic and/or econometric field and whose conclusions have economic implications for the French economy are particularly welcome.
Created in 1971 under the title Statistiques et Études Financières série orange, the journal has been published as Économie et Prévision since 1981. The journal is now housed at the French Treasury, after having been housed at the Forecasting Directorate in the Ministry of the Economy, Finance, and Industry.
Économie et Prévision covers multiple domains: micro- and macro-economic analyses, international, sectoral, labor market, and environmental risks studies, etc. Certain issues are devoted to specific themes (special issues); others are comprised of papers on varied themes. Issues primarily contain original scientific papers, to which are added professional reports. Published papers have been reviewed and revised following a scientific peer review process. Authors are solely responsible for the contents of the published material. Such publication does not engage the liability of the General Directorate of the Treasury or the Ministry of the Economy and Finance. The professional reports are reproductions of a selection of Lettres “Trésor-Éco” which are published by the General Directorate of the Treasury and do not engage the Ministry of the Economy and Finance.
Digital access to papers recently published in the journal is available to subscribers free of charge and on a paid basis for non-subscribers. Abstracts in French and English of recent papers are available for free on the Internet. Several years after publication, papers can be freely downloaded from the Internet. Subscriptions to Économie et Prévision are managed by the DILA (Legal and Administrative Information Department) – Documentation Française.
