Editorial Board changes at The Economic Journal


Three managing editors, Martin Cripps, Andrea Galeotti, and Kjell Salvanes have, or will finish their second 3-year term as Joint Managing Editors of The Economic Journal in 2018. The Economic Journal wishes to express its gratitude to Martin, Andrea and Kjell for the services they have provided to the journal over the last six years and the professionalism and skill they have demonstrated.

During this period, the journal has undergone a large number of changes, it has improved its standing in the profession, and it has had to deal with a very large growth in the number of submissions. Martin, Andrea and Kjell have been instrumental in The Economic Journal’s success in dealing with these changes and have made a lasting and positive impact on the journal.

She received her PhD from Princeton University in 1999 and she has published extensively on microeconomic theory, political economy, and on law and economics.
