WINIR sponsors the Journal of Institutional Economics (JOIE), a multi-disciplinary forum for research on economic institutions.
JOIE is devoted to the study of the nature, role and evolution of institutions in the economy. Contributions considering economic institutions from across the social sciences and the humanities — including anthropology, ethnology, history, human geography, law, linguistics, management, philosophy, politics, psychology, and sociology — are welcome.
JOIE accepts contributions by all schools of thought that can contribute to our understanding of the features, development, and functions of real world economic institutions and organizations.
“The Journal of Institutional Economics is bringing together the best scholarship from all over the world on the study of institutions, the incentives they generate, and likely outcomes. I enthusiastically look forward to each issue.”
Elinor Ostrom (1933-2012)
Nobel Laureate in Economics, 2009
JOIE is edited by Geoffrey M. Hodgson (Editor-in-Chief, Loughborough University London, UK), Richard N. Langlois (University of Connecticut, USA), Jason Potts (RMIT University, Australia), Esther-Mirjam Sent (University of Nijmegen, Netherlands), and Claudia R. Williamson (University of Tennessee, USA). From 2024, the role of Editor-in-Chief will be progressively passed on from Geoffrey Hodgson to Esther-Mirjam Sent.
JOIE is published by Cambridge University Press for Millennium Economics Ltd. Since its first issue, published in June 2005, JOIE has gained in visibility and prominence.
