Call for papers: RSE/IREH Fast track review

The Rivista di Storia Economica / Italian Review of Economic History (RSE/IREH) has embarked on a new course with the first issue of 2022. The Editorial Board aims to promote fresh research on economic history covering a wide range of countries, periods, and methods. To this aim, the RSE/IREH invites submissions for a fast-track workshop and review process.

Draft articles or long abstracts (at least 2,000 words) should be submitted by 19th June 2022. By 22th June 2022, the Board will select the most promising submissions and invite the authors to a dedicated workshop to be held in Siena (11-12th July 2022). During this meeting, each paper will be assessed by a discussant chosen by the Board, followed by a general discussion involving all attendees. The revised selected papers should then be submitted through the on-line platform of the journal by the 15th October 2022. Initial selection does not guarantee publication, which will depend on the second phase of the referee process. The authors of the manuscripts will receive the referee reports, together with editorial comments, before 15th November 2022.

Accepted papers will be published immediately in early view, before appearing in print in subsequent issues of the RSE/IREH. The RSE/IREH is indexed in the Scopus database, among others.

Those interested should send their papers to the following address: If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
