Announcements

We wanted to thank you for attending the 25th Annual LACEA Meeting 2020. Hopefully soon enough we will get to back to in-person meetings. Stay safe!



ECONOMIA, the LACEA's journal, has been accepted for coverage in Thomson's Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), as a first step in its process of full accreditation with Thompson Social Science Citation Index (SSCI). Also, to improve timeliness and usefulness of access, from 2018 onwards the journal will be distributed to LACEA's members in electronic format rather than in print. As previously, the journal is accepting papers on a rolling basis. For more information, please click here.
