Web of Science Impact Factor (2012): 0.409

The Economic and Social Review is Ireland's leading journal for economics and applied social science. The Journal is published four times a year.

The ESR invites high quality submissions in economics, sociology, and cognate disciplines on topics of relevance to Ireland. Contributions based on original empirical research and employing a comparative international approach are particularly encouraged.

The ESR incorporates a policy section that contains applied articles addressing important questions relating to economic and social policy. While these articles do not necessarily have to contain new academic research results, they are subject to the same refereeing process as our academic articles. Suggestions to the Editor for specially themed policy sections are welcome.
