Information for authors

Submit an article

Articles should be submitted on the online submission platform Manuscrits : (see appended tutorial below).

In the process of submitting, you will be asked to provide several pieces of information including an abstract and a list of bibliographic references.

If the submission is co-authored, it is supposed that the author is submitting with the agreement of all his/her co-authors and that he/she his acting on their behalf.

It is a condition for the whole process of expertise that authors sign a publishing agreement when they submit the article, enabling the publisher Association Œconomia to ensure full copyright protection.

Use MSWord or LaTeX

Œconomia accepts submissions prepared with MSWord or LaTeX.

LaTeX uses are asked to provide their manuscript in pdf format (if accepted, they will also provide the .tex file and other relevant files such .bib, and images) using a plain article class. For referencing, we highly recommend the use of BibTeX with the Natbib package.


In this case, one can use the OEconomia_EN_2.bst style file which has been designed to respect the rules exemplified bellow. To ensure proper output of your references, please stick to the three following BibTeX entry types: articles, books, and inproceedings (for everything else, using the 'note' field if required.)

The French parts of the texts (abstract and keywords) should be coded in French with proper French quotation marks (\og \fg).

Articles containing only few equations and mathematical symbols will be submitted preferably in MSWord format, to allow their publishing in open access format HTML. Equations can be prepared with MSWord equation editor and mathematical symbols using Unicode encoding (with mathematical variables in italic, such as a, i, x, …),.

Ensure blind reviewing

To ensure anonymity of authorship, authors must blind their manuscript by performing the following simple alterations:

  • Authors' names and affiliations must not appear on the title page or elsewhere in the paper.

  • Funding source(s) must not be acknowledged on the title page or elsewhere in the paper.

  • All personal acknowledgments should be omitted. Research group members or other colleagues or collaborators must not be acknowledged anywhere in the paper. There should also be no acknowledgment section in the paper.

  • Despite the anonymity requirements, authors should still include relevant prior published work of their own in the references (omitting them could potentially reveal your identity by negation).

Layout of papers

Submissions (except LaTeX pdf) should be double-spaced (or with wide margins) and written in academic English. The layout of papers should conform to the style evidenced in the journal. Section and subsections are numbered according to the international standards (1., 1.1., 1.2, 1.3, etc). Authors are requested to avoid using any other style to make the production process easier.

Tables, figures, photos, appendixes and copyright

Tables, figures and photos, including appendixes, can be submitted as a separate file. We highly recommend that you provide only high resolutions images of at least 1500 pixels wide (in 300 dpi) in one of the following formats: .png, .jpg. They must have a title and a caption indicating the source and copyright information if necessary. Each author has to make sure that he has obtained the right to reproduce documents with a copyright.

Layout of bibliographic references

In the text, the usual presentation conforms the following example:

Ezekiel (1927) made one of the first statistical investigations into complementarity. Yet, in 1933, he could still regret that “no one appears as yet to have attempted to formulate clearly the exact way in which they enter into the demand situation.” (Ezekiel, 1933, 173)

Refereeing process

Our policy towards authors is to ensure a quick and anonymous peer-review process. The editors will do their best to give a decision to authors within a delay of three months. Œconomia – History/Methodology/Philosophy operates a strictly double-blind peer review process.

All manuscripts are reviewed initially by the associate editors, to make sure that they meet the editorial and scientific standards of the journal. Selected manuscripts are then under the responsibility of an editor, who is in charge of following the referee process and to give his/her own appraisal of the article. At this step, the editor is likely to ask the author to amend his/her submission and to resubmit. Each submission is reviewed by at least two referees and the editor is in charge of writing a synthetic comment on the reports and to make a decision for the associate editors. The reports and the editor synthesis and comment are notified to the author as well as the decision of the associate editors.

Production process after acceptation

Accepted papers are prepared for publication by the team of managing editors of Œconomia. During this process, authors may be asked to furnish additional information. They are also requested to correct proofs quickly without author’s remorse. Corrections should be kept to a minimum.

Authors will then receive an “author’s pdf version” that can be used freely for the author’s personal use, notably for institutional archiving. An HTML version is published in open access on the journal website. A pdf version is available for individual and institutional subscribers.
