Editors' Report 2002


Ghysels, Eric, Hall, Alastair R., Journal of Business & Economic Statistics


Two special issues were published in 2002, these were the January 2002 20th anniversary commemorative issue and the October 2002 issue on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the paper on the Generalized Method of Moment estimator by Lars Peter Hansen. The Journal received 213 submissions in 2002, slightly less than the 220 submissions in 2001. This is a second year that the level of submissions is significantly higher than the number in prior years when it typically ranged from 180 to 200. The Journal handles a wide range of areas, though the dominant fields are financial econometrics, labor, macro, marketing, Bayesian and general econometrics. Since some of these areas are overlapping it is difficult to put exact numbers on the share each field occupies. Manuscripts that appear to have technical merit and demonstrated value are evaluated by an Associate Editor and by referees who are blind to the author's names and affiliations. The durations distribution for the handling of manuscripts are summarized in Table 1.

The results reported in Table 1 show that the review times of the Journal have been substantially reduced from 2001 to 2002. Roughly 51% of all submissions were sent back to the author with a response within 8 weeks in 2002. In 2001 only 45% were returned within 16 weeks. In 2001 75% of the papers were handled in less than 168 days, in 2002 this was down to 147 days. The duration distribution statistics also show that the average has gone down from 116 to 89. The short end of the distribution reflects mostly manuscripts that were screened by an Associate Editor or the Editors and deemed unsuitable for further review. This screening process was much smoother in the year 2002, which explains the significant increase of manuscript handled in the first four weeks (42% compared to 17%). In 2001, roughly 28% of the submitted papers were not rejected in the first round. In the year 2002 this percentage was down to 24%. The editorial review process critically depends on the input of time and effort of our Associate Editors. We are grateful to our Board members for handling the manuscripts in a very timely and professional manner. We are obviously also indebted to the many Referees whose input is of paramount importance. We provide a list of the Editorial Collaborators on the next pages.
