Evolutionary and Institutional Economics Review (EIER)

Aims and Scope

The Review (EIER) is issued by the Japan Association for Evolutionary
Economics to provide an international forum for new theoretical and
empirical approaches to evolutionary and institutional economics.  The
Review, devoid of the view of equilibrium economics and methodological
individualism, should account for the diversity of human behavior and
dynamic transformation of institutions.  In the Review, 'economics' is
used in its broadest sense.  It ranges from the classic research in
economic history, economic thoughts, economic theories, and management
science to emerging research fields such as economic sociology,
bio-economics, evolutionary game theory, agent-based modeling, complex
systems study, econo-physics, experimental economics, and so on.  The
Review believes that a truly interdisciplinary discussion is needed to
propel the investigation in the dynamic process of socio-economical
change where institutions as emergent outcomes are impacted by human
actions.  Though the Review is an official journal of the Japan
Association for Evolutionary Economics, it welcomes non-members'
contributions from all parts of the world.  All the contributions are
critiqued under strict scientific criterion, though the Review does not
apply monolithic formalistic measure to them.  Evolution goes hand in
hand with diversities; this is also the spirit of the Review.

The focus areas of the Review include (but are not limited to) the
- Foundations of institutional and evolutionary economics
- Criticism of mainstream views in the social sciences
- Knowledge and learning in socio-economic life
- Development and innovation of technologies
- Transformation of industrial organizations and economic systems
- Experimental studies in economics
- Agent-based modeling of socio-economic systems
- Evolution of the governance structure of firms and other organizations
- Comparison of dynamically changing institutions of the world
- Policy proposals in the transformational process of economic life
