Focus and Scope

While Economic History and Business History are two distinct disciplines, their similarities are stronger than their differences. Since 1975 the Economic & Business History Society has brought scholars from these two fields together through its annual meetings and through the society’s journal, Essays in Economic & Business History. EEBH publishes high-quality research from all aspects of economic and business history. We welcome both empirical and non-empirical research, as well as pieces that, despite their high level of scholarship, may not fit nicely into the usual boxes valued by other outlets in economic or business history.
