JEL Code Information

Articles from Oxford Journals economics titles are classified according to the system used by the Journal of Economic Literature (commonly known as 'JEL codes').

JEL codes are submitted by the article's authors; the codes are displayed on the print article, usually after the abstract, and are used to build a 'Browse by JEL code' listing on the journal's website, as well as a free alerting service so that you can be informed when new papers publish in specific areas that are of interest to you (see below for how to sign up).

There are some things to note:
