How to submit

The Journal of Cultural Economy has a broad interdisciplinary and international mandate. The journal accepts article submissions for peer review that demonstrate conceptual innovation based on original and rigorous empirical research, as well as sustained engagement with a clearly defined set of scholarly literatures or debates.

JCE uses the ScholarOne system to process its articles and manage the double-blind peer review process. Please consult the publisher website for full information on how to use this system. Manuscripts should be submitted here.
