The Journal

The Journal of European Economic History is a quarterly founded in 1972 by economic historians Luigi De Rosa (1922-2004) and Peter Mathias (1928-2016).

Since its inception the mission of the Journal has been to “reknit the common threads of European economic history” both at the national level, and that of the European Economic Community, now European Union.

The study of the relations between Europe and the rest of the world, with special focus to China, Latin America and the U.S., has also been developed as globalization and the interest for global history deepened.

Over forty years, supported by an authoritative International Board, the Journal has published more than five hundred high-quality articles and more than a thousand reviews, achieving global recognition and readership.

The Journal is a peer-review publication, and the papers received are submitted to double-blind refereeing.

The referral process is blind and is supervised by the Editors, and the National and International Boards.
