New Economics (econ) Archive at arXiv.org

October 07, 2017

New Economics (econ) Archive at arXiv.org
https://arxiv.org/help/econ/announcement

An Economics section of the scientific repository arXiv is opening this month. The Economics arXiv will start with a single subject area of Econometrics, but according to demand we expect to add more subject areas in the future, and the Econometrics subject can also be subdivided further. The reason to start with Econometrics is that a significant number of Econometricians already regularly submit their work to the statistics domain of the arXiv. We hope that creating an explicit Econometrics domain will result in a majority of Econometricians to submit their work to the arXiv, so that most of the new papers in the field are disseminated in that way. They initially want to focus on methodological papers, in agreement with the following description: econ.EM (econometrics): Econometric Theory, Micro-Econometrics, Macro-Econometrics, Empirical Content of Economic Relations discovered via New Methods, Methodological Aspects of the Application of Statistical Inference to Economic Data.
