Scope and editorial policy

APPLIED ECONOMICS is a quarterly publication of the Department of Economics, Faculty of Economics, Management and Accounting of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo, with an editorial line dedicated exclusively to scientific articles in applied economics. Its focus is to publish works of economic analysis applied to specific problems of interest to both public and private sectors, and containing, in particular, quantitative studies, whose results can bring the theory to reality. The interaction between empirical work and theory, analysis and economic policy is therefore a major differentiator of the magazine. The journal Applied Economics arises as an open space for the entire academic community, nationally and internationally.
