Preparing papers on economics education

what is iree looking for
What is IREE looking for ?
  • How do economics students learn?
  • What economics should be taught?
  • Constraints in improving economics teaching and learning?
  • How can current practice be improved?
        • Including assessment of learning.
  • What can we learn from other countries?
  • How can we make better use of electronic learning technologies? IREE now incorporates papers that would formerly have appeared in CHEER.
iree has two main sections
IREE has two main sections

1. Research in Economics Education

  • Papers typically between 4000-6000 words.

2. Practice in Economics Education

  • Shorter articles - examples of good practice re learning, teaching and assessment.

  • We see:
  • innovative ways to teach certain topics
    • informed by understanding how students learn
  • reflections on how to facilitate better student learning
  • studies of assessment of students (and student assessments of us !)
tips for getting published in iree
Tips for getting published in IREE
  • demonstrate the evidence-based issue or problem in learning and teaching of economics
      • connect with the literature and establish the contribution
  • demonstrate wide appeal: 1st year or undergrad issues have wider appeal than post-grad
  • make sure it’s about economics education (not education economics)
      • what students should learn in economics
      • how they learn economics and how learning can be improved,
      • how their learning of economics should be assessed
  • make sure any empirics are sound
      • pay attention to sample size
      • if there a control group, state any limitations
      • use the right econometric tests
      • don’t claim too much: e.g. if p values > 0.1 don’t make strident claims
  • write well ! and proof-read carefully
articles on electronic technology in economics education
Articles on electronic technology in economics education
  • We are delighted to announce that issues of IREE now incorporate articles that would have otherwise appeared in CHEER (Computers in Higher Education Economics Review).
  • We continue CHEER’s longstanding contribution to the development of innovative practice in the use of ICT in economics education.
  • Including articles in this field in IREE will provide a unified reference for readers and help to build connections between ICT and other innovations in economics education.
