Basic information

Launched in 1997, Revista de Economia Contemporânea (Journal of Contemporary Economics) is edited by the Institute of Economics at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro ( The journal aims to contribute to the academic debate among the various areas of interest in the Economics field.

On account of UFRJ Institute of Economics’ self-criticism and debating tradition, REC wishes to be plural and open to dialogue with the present-day different theoretical tendencies in the expanding frontiers of economic thought. It also focuses on discussing relevant Economic Policy topics whenever the editorials have academic importance. The magazine is regarded as an influential vehicle of information amidst the academic journals on economy in Brazil.

Its abbreviated title is Rev. Econ. Contemp., which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.
