AAEA welcomes proposals for Invited Paper sessions for the 2021 AAEA Annual Meeting in Austin, TX. Papers in these Invited Paper sessions may be published in the Applied Economics Perspectives and Policy (AEPP) in March 2022, subject to review. Proposals from individuals or groups need to be submitted using the online submission system by Thursday, December 3, 2020. The system will open in early November.
The most successful invited papers frame new areas of research, provide a systematic review of an existing area, or offer a novel perspective.
Proposed session formats must include either two papers with two discussants or three papers with one discussant. Four paper sessions will not be considered.
Proposals will be evaluated using the following criteria:
Proposals should include session title and rationale, two-page abstracts and titles for each proposed presentation, and names and contact information of authors, discussants, and moderators.
The invited papers should be completed by Thursday, April 8, 2021. These completed versions will be reviewed by the invited paper sessions committee, and feedback to improve the papers will be provided to the author(s). Final versions of the invited papers must be submitted to AAEA by Thursday, May 20, 2021. If the authors wish the invited paper to be reviewed for publication in the AEPP, it should also be submitted to the AEPP Editors via Editorial Express by Wednesday, August 25, 2021.
If you have any questions about submitting an Invited Paper session proposal, please contact Mary Annen at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (414) 918-3190.
