National Institute Economic Review

About the Review

The National Institute Economic Review is the peer-reviewed, quarterly publication of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR). From 2020, the Review will be published by Cambridge University Press and is indexed in RePEcJSTOR and Scopus. The Review archive, back to 1951, is available to subscribers.

Aims and Scope

Founded in 1938, NIESR is one of Britain’s oldest and most prestigious independent research organisations. Our objective is to promote, through quantitative and qualitative research, a deeper understanding of the interaction of economic and social forces that affect peoples’ lives, and the ways in which policies can improve them. The Review reflects these aims, in publishing articles of both academic and policy interest spanning all areas of economic and social research. The editorial board for the Review includes the Director, Jagjit Chadha, and a team of leading researchers covering a wide range of expertise. There is also an International Advisory Board comprised of a uniquely influential group of global experts in economic and social research and policy.

From February 2021, the Review will be diversifying. Our quarterly UK and world economy forecasts, produced using NIESR’s global econometric model NiGEM, will be published in-house. These will still be available to subscribers of the Review. Our peer-reviewed collection of papers, including a topical commentary on a current policy, continues. The National Institute Economic Review will continue to be released quarterly (February, May, August and November), both online and in-print, publishing leading articles in macroeconomics, forecasting, the impact of events such as Brexit and Covid-19 on households, and specific industries and sectors.

Starting from May 2021, the Review will publish a series of Special Issues including a selection of original, invited-only papers, each highlighting new work conducted in current areas of research, as identified by the National Institute Economic Review Editorial Board. The aim is to promote advancements in the economic and social fields.  You can also view our workshop videos here.

Forthcoming issues include: “The Coronavirus Pandemic and Macroeconomic Forecasting” (May 2021) and “Economics and Epidemiology” (August 2021).
