Innovations in Economic Education

The Review of Keynesian Economics has a call for papers for a Special Issue on Innovations in Economic Education. See below.

Guest Editors: Geoffrey E. Schneider, Bucknell University and Daniel A. Underwood, Peninsula College and University of Washington

The Review of Keynesian Economics is seeking papers of various types related to Innovations in Economic Education that help advance student understanding of the economic process, the forces shaping macroeconomic and microeconomic performance, and appropriate policy options to increase economic welfare. Papers can be short (1500-3000 word) descriptions of classroom exercises or the application of particular pedagogies (e.g., collaborative learning, service learning, active learning, web based interactive exercises) to teach heterodox economics. Submissions can also be longer, in-depth articles (up to 7500 words) which explore a particular pedagogical issue, assess student learning outcomes, or address other teaching issues related to heterodox economics. Articles should clearly stress a heterodox economic tradition (e.g., social economics, institutional economics, post-Keynesian economics, Marxian economics, Feminist economics, etc.) with an emphasis on how that tradition can advance economic education in a Keynesian tradition. Where appropriate, articles should document the effectiveness of the teaching approach described in the article. Thus, authors should make sure to include documentation of their assessment of the teaching exercises they discuss.

Manuscripts should be submitted to Louis-Philippe Rochon, at Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with our house style guidelines.

Please specify that your paper is for the symposium on Innovations in Economic Education. The deadline for manuscript submission is May 15, 2015. Articles must be in final form by January 31, 2016. The symposium will appear in July 2016.

Papers will pass a double-blind referee process and are subject to the final approval of the Editors of the Review of Keynesian Economics.


The Review of Keynesian Economics encourages research and discourse in Keynesian economics – be it old Keynesianism, fundamental Keynesianism, neo-Keynesianism, Post Keynesianism, Sraffian Keynesianism, Kaleckian Keynesianism, or Marxist Keynesianism. The journal provides a forum for developing and sharing Keynesian ideas. Not only does that include ideas about macroeconomic theory and policy, it also extends to microeconomic and mesoeconomic analysis and relevant empirical and historical research.
