Essays in Economic & Business History

Currently in its 37th year of publication, Essays in Economic & Business History now operates as an on-line open access journal with a print issue to coincide with the Society’s annual conference. Articles for the journal are selected by double blind review process. EEBH provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. In this same spirit, accepted articles awaiting the next print issue are made available on-line as soon as the editorial process is completed.

EEBH is listed by Cabell’s International directory, the Directory of Open Access Journals, the AEA’s EconLit, EBSCO’s Historical Abstracts, and entered the UK’s Chartered Association of Business Schools’ Academic Journal Guide as a ‘2’ in 2018.
