Bulletin of Economics and Meta-Analysis

The purpose of the Bulletin of Economics and Meta-Analysis (BEMA) is to provide a forum for recent meta-analyses in economics, to publish fresh research quickly, and thereby to improve the quality of meta-analytic research before it is submitted to traditional scholarly journals. We seek to publish, electronically, short notes and longer abstracts that briefly sketch recent research about meta-analysis or that employs meta-analysis. It is assumed that all notes submitted will contain links to longer working papers. Authors wishing to have their notes considered for publication in BEMA should submit them for review to:
