About Us

EconPress is an editorial journal exclusively showcasing undergraduate economic research.

Initiated in the spring of 2009 by motivated individuals with a passion for economics, the Journal has continued to publish papers addressing a variety of topics. Papers are selected on merit and not restricted to either quantitative or qualitative research.

While the Journal is published by students from Northeastern University, it is not exclusive to Northeastern students. ECONPress has received and published papers from undergraduates at MIT, Stanford, Tufts and other universities in the greater Boston Area, and we welcome submissions from undergraduates of all institutions.

Journals average around 80 pages and feature 4-6 papers.
