Submission Guidelines for The History of Economic Thought
The History of Economic Thought is a peer-reviewed journal on the history of economic thought, biannually published by the Japanese Society for the History of Economic Thought. Submissions are welcome on a wide range of topics relevant to the history of economic thought and will be considered for publication either as “Articles” or as “Notes and Communications.”
- Manuscripts should be original and previously unpublished.
- As a rule, the editorial board puts each submission through a double-blind refereeing process involving two reviewers and will decide whether the manuscript should be accepted, revised and resubmitted, or rejected.
- The Japanese Society for the History of Economic Thought will retain the copyright concerning all publications in The History of Economic Thought.
- Any manuscript should be in Microsoft Word format and comprise a title (including a subtitle), a body of text, footnotes, references, and an abstract.
4-1. The title, text, footnotes, and abstract should be written in English, except for quotations that were originally written in another language.
4-2. The title, text, footnotes, and references should not exceed 12,000 words in total.
4-3. The abstract should be approximately 250 words in length (but no more than 300 words), including the title, author’s name, and three or so JEL classification numbers, and should be placed on a final separate page.
- As for the style, please consult the Journal Style Guidelines.
Notes and Communications

a critique, survey, or introduction of new research trends in or unpublished materials relevant to the history of economic thought (approximately 1,500 words).
a critique or rejoinder to any article(s) published in The History of Economic Thought (approximately 600 words).
