In this article I lay out my target journals for a paper in experimental economics. See the bottom of this paper where I link to related articles explaining the selection process. In this case, I’m grepping the Repec list for the substring “experi”.
I also added a couple marketing journals because the experiment I conducted seemed like a marketing experiment, and also because I didn’t want to delve into journals with rank lower than 500. I added Educational Studies as a sixth option because of strong factors other than rank.
- Experimental Economics, Springer, Rank 37, 2-3 months to review, 15-25% accepted, 38 median mentions per article

- Educational Studies, 925, 1-2 months, 40%, 20
I’ll start by targeting JBEE because of its quick review time. My model paper will be Happy savers and happy spenders: An experimental study comparing US Americans and Germans because:
- It’s of comparable sample size (n~100)
- Non-complex treatment scheme
- Relates to personal finance
- Compares groups geographically
- Oct 2019, Preparing to Submit My First Academic Paper
- Nov 2019, Selecting Model Papers
- Dec 2019, Preparing to Submit an Economic History Paper
