About the Journal

The World Bank Economic Review is the most widely read scholarly economic journal in the world and is freely distributed to more than 9,500 subscribers in non-OECD countries. It is the only journal of its kind that specializes in quantitative development policy analysis. Subject to strict refereeing, articles examine policy choices and therefore emphasize policy relevance rather than theory or methodology. Readers include economists and other social scientists in government, business, international agencies, universities, and research institutions. The WBER seeks to provide the most current and best research in the field of economic development.
