EconPress is an editorial journal exclusively showcasing undergraduate economic research. ECONPress offers undergraduate students the opportunity to have their research papers published in a reputable publication, one that is registered with the Library of Congress. 

Started 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 by no means exclusive to Northeastern students. ECONPress has received and published papers from undergraduates at MIT, Stanford, Tufts and other universities in the greater Boston Area.

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