emecon is an international online journal for the study of the economic life in Central and Eastern Europe. Its perspectives are multi-disciplinary, coming from political economy, economic sociology and industrial relations. It aims at a better understanding of contemporary socio-economic life in Central and Eastern Europe, focusing on the link between society and economy, presenting current and comparative studies using both qualitative and quantitative methodologies.
A special concern is close temporal proximity. Often research results on the region are dispersed and difficult to find, or their publication takes a long time given the high restrictions by many journals. For these reasons, emecon offers a rather quick review process to enable that research can be timely presented timely to its readers.
