Aims & scope


The IZA Journal of Labor Economics covers research in all areas of labor economics. It publishes high quality theoretical and applied contributions on both microeconomic and macroeconomic oriented labor-related topics.

In particular, the Journal encourages submissions in subject areas that are closely linked to the various IZA program areas, and are not covered by one of the other area-specific journals in the IZA Journal Series. Contributions on various topics such as evaluation of labor market programs, behavioral and personnel economics, labor market aspects of environmental issues, and labor market institutions, among others, are highly welcomed.

The IZA Journal of Labor Economics belongs to the family of field journals in the IZA Journal Series with Springer, also including: (i) the IZA Journal of Migration, (ii) the IZA Journal of Labor Policy, (iii) the IZA Journal of European Labor Studies, and (iv) the IZA Journal of Labor & Development. Each journal publishes 24 articles per year, where each article should be about 10,000 words (including tables, figures and references).
