Inaugural Virtual Issue of The Economic Journal


The inaugural Virtual Issue of The Economic Journal has been published and can be read online for free for a limited time.

The issue focuses on how researchers in different fields of economics have found gender important for understanding the economy and individual behaviour.

The collection covers a wide range of methods and issues—from politics, justice, education, all the way to demography—which illustrates the diversity of current research on gender.

While the collection focuses on recent articles, it starts with an article published by Sidney Webb in the first volume of the Journal, entitled “The Alleged Differences in the Wages Paid to Men and to Women for Similar Work” which shows the topicality, then and now, of the subject for economics.
