The Cahiers d’Economie Politique / Papers in Political Economy – PPE was created in 1974 and is specialized in history of economic thought. Considering that the study of past authors and contemporary debates are complementary, the PPE publishes papers on history of economic thought, economic philosophy, but also papers overlapping fields of history of economic thought and contemporary economic theory or economic history.
Due to the rigorous evaluation procedure and the high quality of submissions, PPE is the main French review in history of economic thought. PPE is referenced in: IBSS, RePEc, JEL, Econlit (Full text) and Cabell's Directories under the French title: Cahiers d'Économie Politique.
PPE is published twice a year, with a varia issue in June and a thematic issue in December. Varia issues include papers submitted at the initiative of their authors on a variety of topics, while thematic issues are systematically preceded by calls for papers. The journal publishes articles both in French and in English, with the support of the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research), of the University Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense and of the Institut d’Etudes Politiques of Lille.
For thirty-five years, the PPE has promoted the study of past economists as a means to shed light on today’s theoretical debates. To achieve this, a Collection has been set up to make available texts that have always remained unpublished or that are currently out of print. Proposals of publication in “La Collection” should be sent to Arnaud Orain: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submitted papers must represent original work not published elsewhere, with rare exceptions. Papers should not be under consideration for publication at another journal during the refereeing process at Cahiers. When a submitted paper is in line with the editorial policy of the journal, it is reviewed by two anonymous referees. The procedure is double-blind as the author’s anonymity is also preserved. Referees have six weeks to provide their reports and the editorial board makes publication decisions after a collective discussion.
Thematic issues include papers presented at conferences or workshops whose organizing committee includes at least one member of the editorial board or of the scientific committee of the Cahiers. Papers submitted in response to the call are first selected by the organizing committee of the conference or workshop, then by the scientific committee of the Cahiers.
For proceedings to be published in this form, conference organizers are invited to contact the journal’s editorial board since release of their call for papers. Given the duration of the refereeing and copyediting processes, the selected papers must be submitted to the journal at least one year before the expected date of publication. Contributions to all sections are peer-reviewed before publication.
