General heterodox journals ↑
American Journal of Economics and Sociology ↑
The American Journal of Economics and Sociology (AJES) was founded in 1941, with support from the Robert Schalkenbach Foundation, to encourage the development of transdisciplinary solutions to social problems. The journal is currently undergoing a transition. It is renewing its original mission by publishing thematic issues on institutional responses to contemporary disruptions of social harmony and environmental sustainability. Unsolicited manuscripts are not accepted.
In all scientific research, even in the most seemingly neutral empirical investigation, there can never be a strict separation between fact and value, between positive and normative judgment. Choices of subject matter, methodology, and framing of issues all involve values. Rather than striving for artificial neutrality, the journal will encourage authors to advocate positions by articulating their presuppositions in terms of principles, policies, or methods.
The same principle applies to the journal itself. In the selection of topics for the journal and to some extent in the selection of authors, the journal will exhibit an ideological bias. At this stage, it is enough to say that the journal favors the economic preconditions for republican government: sufficient economic equality to permit every citizen to participate fully in public life. The editor will select topics that regard highly concentrated wealth and political power as problems. Over time, other editorial biases will become apparent.

Brazilian Journal of Political Economy ↑
Since its first issue, January 1981, the Brazilian Journal of Political Economy is a peer reviewed journal, which sees economics as political economy. Papers with Keynesian, structuralist, or institutionalist approaches are welcome.
The Journal publishes papers on development economics and macroeconomics, adopting a historical-deductive method, as well as papers criticizing economic theory. The Journal also welcomes applied papers containing relevant research, having priority papers on developing countries. In the revisions of the literature the Brazilian and Latin-American relevant authors are not supposed to be left aside. In the case of econometric studies, the technical aspects are supposed to be published only in the journal’s electronic edition.
The papers are published according to the date that they are approved, but some priority will be given to the ones in English. In accepting the submission the Journal adopts as additional criterion the scope of the paper and its interest in publishing it.
The Brazilian Journal of Political Economy will publish papers on political economy and political theory, that is, papers that relate economics or the market with the state or with politics. Papers on developing countries will have priority. The Journal will not consider for publication either excessively abstract mathematical papers, or purely econometric papers with limited scope. TheJournal maintains its pluralistic character, welcoming papers ranging from institutionalist, Keynesian, Schumpeterian, and structuralist approaches, originated from economists as well as political scientists. We emphasize that the authors respect the Instructions for Contributors, particularly with what concerns to the size limits.

New School Economic Review ↑
At a time of declining representation of critical thinking in economics, the New School Economic Review aims to be a student-run journal with a content influenced by the history and tradition of the New School. New School s history points to a multidisciplinary and heterodox approach to the social sciences. The early Classical thinkers Smith, Ricardo and Marx realized that the study of economics must be the study of political economy economics within a social and political context. In keeping with this tradition, the New School Economic Review will serve as a medium for critical thinking in economics but with a multidisciplinary perspective encompassing all the social sciences. Furthermore, the NSER will aim to develop a forum for professors, practitioners, and students to discuss current issues in the discipline of economics while sharing insights from other disciplines, as well as debating world political and social affairs.

Review of Keynesian Economics ↑
The Review of Keynesian Economics is a peer-reviewed journal, published 4 times a year, and is intended to promote research within the Keynesian paradigm, and is open to all forms of Keynesianism be it old Keynesianism, fundamental Keynesianism, neo-Keynesianism, Post Keynesianism, Sraffian Keynesianism, Kaleckian Keynesianism, or Marxist Keynesianism. We define Keynesian economics broadly as (1) holding that output and employment are normally constrained by aggregate demand, (2) holding that the problematic of aggregate demand shortage exists independently of price, nominal wage, and nominal interest rate rigidities, and (3) rejecting the claim that the real wage is equal to the marginal disutility of labor. This openness to all forms of Keynesianism reflects a desire to avoid intellectual sectarianism.
The journal will be dedicated to the development of Keynesian theory and policy. In our view, Keynesian theory should hold a similar place in economics to that held by the theory of evolution in biology. The journal aims to offer such support by providing a forum for developing and sharing Keynesian ideas. Not only does that include ideas about macroeconomic theory and policy, it also extends to microeconomic and meso-economic analysis and relevant empirical and historical research. We see a bright future for the Keynesian approach to macroeconomics and invite the economics profession to join us by subscribing to the journal and submitting manuscripts.

Régulation Review. Capitalism, Institutions, Powers ↑
The Régulation Review. Capitalism, Institutions, Powers is an international, peer-reviewed, JEL-refereed, econlit-listed journal.
The journal seeks to provide a forum for research in the field of regulationist studies and, more broadly, for the full spectrum of institutionalist approaches in economics and beyond. The journal seeks above all to foster a broad discussion that includes other social sciences such as economic sociology, history, political science, management, etc.
Indeed, a historicized and socially grounded understanding of political economy appears more necessary than ever for a deeper understanding of the alternatives for economic policies and the strategic evolution of business, as well as their effects at the micro, meso, and macro levels. Sustaining global thinking about the transformation of capitalism, given the scales and diversity of its reconfigurations, means bringing together work from a variety of horizons. The journal welcomes research articles in English or French that focus on descriptions of the structural forms of contemporary capitalisms and on investigation of the new dynamics that are involved, as well as on the theoretical and methodological tools that enable these phenomena to be better understood. The review’s ambition is to take into account the most characteristic dimensions of contemporary changes, in particular:
Globalization and the constitution of new inter- and intra-state assemblies;
New forms of regulation which are set up at various levels (regional, State-Nation, but also new forms of sectorial or territorial regulations);
Factors likely to generate new forms of crises, particularly demographic and ecological questions;
Integration or marginalisation of countries in the southern hemisphere within contemporary capitalism;
New prospects for non-standard micro-economics, organizational studies;
Various types of texts will be published (after submission to the Reading Panel, RP, or Editorial Board, EB):
Scientific articles (RP with referee)
View point: opinion – debates – notes related to economic current events (EB)
Book and conference reports (EB)
PhD presentation (EB)

History of Economic Ideas rejects the dichotomy between analysis and culture : both aspects are of equal importance for a wider understanding of the subject. In a period such as our own, where paradigms which once seemed unshakeable are now being challenged, a multidisciplinary analysis of the historical development of economics might contribute to shedding light on the issues at the root of current debate. Besides essays and critical surveys, the journal will include archive material and reviews of new books on history of economics.

OEconomia – History / Methodology / Philosophy is a quarterly bilingual (French/English) peer-reviewed journal.
OEconomia has a broad coverage, publishing articles in history of economic thought, economic methodology and economic philosophy, but also in normative economics and economic history in relation to history of economic thought. Leading specialists also contribute to a rich and regular book review section freely accessible on the journal website.
The editorial project of OEconomia stems from the established fact that the community of researchers interested in history of economic thought, in economic methodology or philosophy, is a scattered community, as a result of a constant process of specialization over the last thirty years. Within the current context of growing fragmentation and transformations of economics as a discipline, especially in relation to other disciplines, it is time to gather together the insights from the historians of economic thought and specialists in economic methodology and philosophy, in order to put in perspective the transformations of the discipline today and in the past. The aim of Œconomia is to gather together specialists of those subfields and beyond, with the aim of promoting mutual enrichment of their methods and approaches, and to encourage a wide diffusion of their results. Œconomia publishes regular thematic symposia on topics related to recent developments in economic analysis, economic history and policy.

Evolutionary and Institutional Economic Review ↑
EIER is issued by the Japan Association for Evolutionary Economics to provide an international forum for new theoretical and empirical approaches to evolutionary and institutional economics. The Review, free from the view of equilibrium economics and methodological individualism, should face the diversity of human behavior and dynamic transformation of institutions. In the Review, economics is used in its broadest sense. It covers from the classic research in economic history, economic thought, economic theory, and management science to emerging research fields such as economic sociology, bio-economics, evolutionary game theory, agent-based modeling, complex systems study, econo-physics, experimental economics, and so on. The Review believes that a truly interdisciplinary discussion is needed to propel the investigation in the dynamic process of socio-economical change where institutions as emergent outcomes of human actions do matter. Though the Review is an official journal of the Japan Association for Evolutionary Economics, it welcomes non-members contributions from all parts of the world. All the contributions are refereed under strict scientific criterion, though the Review does not apply monolithic formalistic measure to them. Evolution goes hand in hand with diversities; this is also the spirit of the Review.

Conversely, economists and practitioners of other social disciplines are encouraged to apply their models to the historical evidence.
The journal covers the following: the internal structures of firms; the history of technologies; the evolution of industries; the nature of competition; the decision rules and strategies; the relationship between firms characteristics and the institutional environment; the sociology of management and of the workforce; the performance of industries over time; the labour process and the organization of production; the relationship between, and boundaries of, organizations and markets; the nature of the learning process underlying technological and organizational change.

International Journal of Development Issues ↑
The International Journal of Development Issues is a peer-reviewed journal. The main objective of the IJDI is to publish research output on all important development issues with a focus on development dynamism and a bias for inter-disciplinary approach. In particular, Economics, Politics, History, Sociology, Anthropology, Ecology, Social Work, Commerce, Information Technology, Law and allied disciplines would receive special priorities. The IJDI welcomes publication of papers that are empirically oriented, but with solid methodological foundation based on realism and pragmatism rather than on idealism. It encourages critical analysis of development issues not only from the heterodox viewpoints (such as new- and post-structuralist, neo- and new-institutionalist, etc.), but also from the neo-liberalist viewpoint in orthodox tradition. The IJDI is intended for being an international forum of exchanging viewpoints of a wide variety of perspectives and disciplines. It is expected that the IJDI would be a genuine guideline for socially appropriate policy prescriptions made by the development practitioners and policy makers in both developing and emerging market economies of Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America.

Journal of Innovation Economics & Management ↑
Innovation is defined by the creation and commercialization of a new product and new technologies, the use of new production processes and labour inputs or the entering in new markets. Knowledge economy implies that innovation is more and more the outcome of interaction between firms, universities, public institutions and consumers. Networks of innovation create new knowledge and commercialise it, embodied in new modes of production and distribution. Innovation stems from technological, organizational and distributional change. Journal of Innovation Economics is a lieu of discussion of new innovation strategies of firms and organization which have an impact on the economy and society. How do firms conceive innovation processes? How does innovation impact on firms competitiveness and performance? The journal hosts contributions to the analysis of the realisation of innovation, strategies of appropriation and those of diffusion of knowledge at an international scale, where MNCs dominate the competition context and high skilled human resources are a precious asset to survive. JIE readers will enjoy as well discussions on the most appropriate management tools to have a better understanding of how to operationalise and implement innovation. JIE is keen in promoting a multidisciplinary approach and methodology which illustrate firms technological opportunities, organizational strategies and integrated management of research and development projects, marketing and finance. JIE is devoted to promote a debate on innovation, both theoretical and empirical. Technological change, entrepreneurship, firms strategies, public policies and more in general the evolution of the economies and societies are the issues to be explored within JIE.

This paper presents a comparison between Chinese perspectives on systems thinking and ideas from the West, primarily the U.S. and the U.K. In particular we focus on the debate between reductionism and holism which is one of the classical subjects of study in the philosophy of science. Just like the West, China experienced theoretical debate between holism and reductionism which spanned across a broad range of fields such as traditional Chinese medicine and reliability-centered systems engineering. The Chinese developed their own oriental systems methodologies based on the philosophical foundation of ancient oriental philosophy thoughts and dialectic principle, the most distinctive of which include the Meta-synthesis Approach and the Wuli- Shili-Renli approach. In the Western approach to systems thinking there are similar concepts of holistic thinking, synergism, and cause and effect. However, interesting differences exist between China and the West in the role of intuition in decision making. We explore these differences and discuss the implications for applying each approach in different problem solving contexts.
