Publishing Economic History
Most scientific texts are written for the purpose of publication, and most authors prefer publication in prestigious peer-reviewed outlets. Written by the editor of a leading journal in economic history, this chapter discusses how a compelling question, clear analysis and description, original and persuasive insights, and efforts to relate the findings to existing and future research form the key elements of successful studies that are published well.
