CESifo Economic Studies aims to bridge the gap between specialised research in economics and the interest of non-specialists. The journal combines theory and empirical research with a strong emphasis on policy issues. CESifo Economic Studies publishes contributed papers by top-level academic economists which are written in a style accessible to all economists regardless of their specialisation.

The primary focus of the journal is on policy problems, but it also publishes high quality, non-technical articles which are of general interest to economists.

CESifo Economic Studies is published quarterly. All articles appearing in the journal are thoroughly refereed. The journal replaced ifo Studien, which was published from 1955 to 2002. CESifo Economic Studies is covered by the Social Sciences Citation Index

From 2006 on Oxford University Press publishes the CESifo Economic Studies.


The Editors are: Panu Poutvaara, Matz Dahlberg, Christos Kotsogiannis and Xavier Mateos-Planas.
