Aims and Scope

The Singapore Economic Review is a triannual journal devoted to the publication of high-quality theoretical and empirical papers on all aspects of economics with a special emphasis on the economic problems related to Asian countries. The journal has a long history of publication of a broad range of economic issues impinging on Southeast Asia and the broader Asia-Pacific region. It was initially published as the Malayan Economic Review (MER) from 1956, which was later renamed the Singapore Economic Review (SER) in 1969. Among its distinguished contributors were the late Sir John Hicks, Sydney Caine, the late H.G. Johnson, Ragnar Nurkse, H.W. Singer, W.M. Corden, Herbert Grubel, J.C.H. Fei, G. Ranis, Henry Wan, E.J. Mishan, Jerome L. Stein, Jack L. Knetsch, Ng Yew-Kwang, Murray Kemp, Karl Shell and Ronald I. McKinnon. The journal has a wide international circulation; among the many subscribers are the libraries of Harvard University, Stanford University, University of Cambridge, University of Oxford and the London School of Economics.

The SER's editorial board consists of prominent scholars with different areas of specializations from across the world. With World Scientific as the journal's publisher, the Singapore Economic Review has sections devoted to public policy, applied economics, markets and industry, commentaries, and short papers or notes.
