Welcome to AccessEcon
AccessEcon is an outgrowth of software written in 1999 and 2000 to support the publication of the Economics Bulletin, an open-access online journal meant to compete with the Elsevier publication: Economics Letters. EB has been more successful than we ever would have imagined and had over 1000 submissions in 2008. In 2005 and 2006 we began to adapt this software to help us organize the Public Economic Theory meetings and soon realized that it was possible to go further to create a general tool that would allow us to host open access journals, editorial back offices for paper-based journals, working paper series and provide turnkey conference organization interfaces. Since our objective is to return scholarship to scholars, we offer it as a free service to qualified members and groups in the economics research community. If you are interested, please contact John P. Conley or Myrna Wooders for more information.
