Three steps to your submission
Choose your journal
Welcome to the IZA Journal of Labor Policy. What makes this journal distinct from the vast majority of existing journals in economics is its focus on policy relevance rather than scientific innovation.
Subject areas include evaluation of labor market programs and educational or other interventions that affect labor market outcomes, analysis of the relationship between institutions and labor market outcomes, and all public policy aspects of labor, education, welfare and related social policies, and retirement, including effective policy implementation.
Benefit from OA
The IZA Journal of Labor Policy offers you the chance to disseminate your research findings as broadly as possible – without any access barriers for readers.
To cover the costs of publishing services, an article-processing charge (APC) is applied to all articles accepted for publication (no submission fees). Please note that authors are not expected to pay this charge from their own funds. Instead, the APC can be covered by external funding, the SpringerOpen Institutional Membership program, SpringerNature’s waiver program or by IZA’s APC sponsorship. You will be guided to choose the appropriate option or apply for IZA sponsorship in the final step of the submission process.
Go to EM system
The SpringerOpen Editorial Manager will easily guide you through the submission process. You are only minutes away from successfully contributing to the IZA Journal of Labor Policy, and we are very much looking forward to receiving your submission.
