Submit to Vol. VII

Why Submit?

Having your paper published in the journal has multiple benefits. It acts as both a valuable resume-builder and a way to differentiate yourself from applicants in your field. More importantly, the process allows you to share your research internationally and it provides an opportunity to have your work peer-reviewed.

Submission Guidelines

We accept submissions of academic papers from the fields of Economics, Finance, Political Economy, Mathematics, and Public Policy authored or co-authored by current undergraduate students or recent graduates (less than 12 months from graduation date) from any appropriately-accredited foreign or domestic institution.

First round submissions may be in any format, but editing should be expected upon acceptance. At this stage, each paper will be reviewed briefly by a member of our staff. A few things to note regarding your submission:

  • Suggested length is less than 25 pages, including references and appendices
  • Submissions should include a short abstract or executive summary
  • We do our best to keep your name and institutional affiliation confidential throughout the process until publication
  • You should expect comments and criticism from professors, lecturers (with PhDs), graduate students, or staff editors during later rounds
  • You will be contacted promptly if your paper is to proceed through each round

​You will be contacted after the deadline if your submission passes to the next round. Deadline to submit for the 2019-2020 edition is January 24, 2020 at 11:59 PM Central Standard Time, also known as "Chicago Time". Deadline is subject to change at any time and for any reason. Second and third rounds include an in-depth review by a UT faculty member in your research area as well as additional review by our editorial staff.
