The Journal of Institutional Economics: Announcement of a Douglass North Memorial Issue

Deadline

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

You may have heard of the recent death of Douglass North. The Journal of Institutional Economics (JOIE) is planning a memorial issue in his honour. North was on the International Advisory Board of this journal.

This is a call for essays of the highest quality, related to North and his work on institutions. Would you be interested in making a contribution? Articles can be critical or constructive. But we would like the links to North’s own work on institutions to be explicit.

All contributions will go through our normal refereeing process. It is hoped to publish this memorial issue in late 2016 or early 2017. But, once accepted, articles for JOIE are published quickly online. Submissions for the North Memorial Issue should be online via http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/joie, before 20 April 2016.

If your article is not accepted in time for the memorial issue, then it can be scheduled for a following issue, if and when it is accepted.

You can find out about JOIE and its guidelines for contributors on: http://www.millennium-economics.com/p15.htm

Winir Symposium on Property Rights

If your article for this North Memorial Issue relates to property rights (recollect North’s arguments concerning their importance in economic development), then you may wish to submit an abstract of this paper for possible presentation at the World Interdisciplinary Network for Institutional Research (WINIR) Symposium on “Property Rights” in Bristol, UK on 4-6 April 2016. The abstract submission deadline for this symposium is 31 December 2015.

See http://winir.org/?page=events&side=symposium_2016. This would be an opportunity for feedback on your paper before submission to the Journal of institutional Economics. But submission to this Symposium is not a condition for submission to the memorial issue of this journal.

Best wishes

Geoff Hodgson, JOIE Editor in Chief
