Economic Inquiry editor's report.

The 2008 volume of Economic Inquiry consists of 45 papers in a wide variety and diverse set of fields, including microeconomics, macroeconomics, and empirical studies.

Since my last report, the regular co-editors are the same. Among the specialized co-editors, we lost Hal Varian and added Marianne Bitler, for health economics, and Yan Chen, for experimental economics. I thank the co-editors for their hard work, diligence and expertise. Kaulene Gellerman has done terrific work serving as my administrative assistant and much of the success of the journal at improving performance despite heavy submissions is due to her.

Our strongest fields, based on submissions, are sports, health, experimental and defense. The economics of publishing, internet issues and field experiments also attract a decent following. The miscellany section is distinguished by publishing a papers from two Nobel laureates and the humorous controversy surrounding the AC/DC paper by Robert Oxoby.

Table 1 shows the processing of manuscripts by year of submission. 15 of the 470 papers submitted in 2008 and accepted so far were revised once, while 45 were accepted on the initial submission. This is part of an explicit policy to reduce the number of rounds; papers that are close to acceptance are accepted with suggestions. None of these accepted papers required two revisions. (It shows up in the R&R column.) Another 39 manuscripts submitted prior to 2008 were accepted; most of these unidentified outcomes are probably in this group.

Submissions remain strong. We had 470 submissions in 2008, a 79% increase over 2006, the last full year before the new policy went into force. Submissions have been processed substantially quicker than in previous years. The average first decision was reached in 69 days; the acceptances took an average of 87 days and rejects took 86 days. Prior to 2007 acceptances averaged about 14 months.

The increased volume remains a double strain. First, there is the added volume to process. In addition, it is necessary to raise the standards if we are not to increase the size of the journal. This is a challenge which I believe we are meeting.

Rejected papers are very quick, with a median of 79, a mean of 87 and 80% processed within four months.

The no revisions policy accounted for 31% of 2008 submissions. The acceptance rate for no revisions manuscripts is higher than of the regular submissions. Processing took an average of 79 days.

I am especially grateful to the referees. Economic Inquiry requested 640 referee reports, an increase of about 40% over 2006. However, when a decision can reasonably be made with fewer, we release and thank any remaining referees. The complete list is printed below.
