Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Oct 7, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Tim Taylor, Editor, Journal of Economics Perspectives, will present “Running an Economics Journal and the Changing Economics of Academic Journals."  Since 1986, Taylor has served as the managing editor of the Journal of Economic Perspectives, hosted by Macalester College since 2001 and one of seven journals published by the American Economic Association. The journal is distinctive from other academic journals because it solicits most of the papers and edits them heavily so that they will be accessible to the broad range of economists who specialize in a variety of subjects.  Taylor will discuss how JEP works, how economics journals work, and more broadly how the economics of academic journals in all fields is evolving in an internet world.  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
