Submit a paper
To submit a paper, at least one of the authors of the paper has to be a member of the Econometric Society. There is no submission fee; membership of the Econometric Society by at least one author is all that is required. If none of the authors is a member of the Econometric Society, please join at http://www.econometricsociety.org/memb.asp .
Papers must be submitted as pdf files; the size of the text font must be at least 12 point. Please include each figure and table on the relevant page in the paper; do not collect figures and tables at the end of the paper. The list of references should appear after any appendices, at the very end of the paper.
The editorial process at Quantitative Economics is completely independent of that at Econometrica. However, if your paper has been previously rejected by Econometrica, in our submission process you have the option of requesting the transfer of the coeditor's decision letter, referees' reports, and referees' covering letters directly from Econometrica to us. (This transfer is completely optional. Not revealing that you previously submitted your paper to Econometrica is perfectly fine.) Note there is a presumption that we will consult referees different from ones consulted by the Econometrica coeditor.
