About the Journal

Student Political Economy Review is a cross-institutional, open-access, blind-reviewed academic journal for university students writing in political economy and related fields. We publish research outputs as well as letters, perspectives, proceedings from seminars, talks and public lectures, book reviews and literature reviews. We accept submissions on a rolling basis for immediate online publication and collation in a regular print schedule.

We accept submissions from undergradute and postgraduate students at any Australian university. Authors do not need to be studying political economy, though only submissions in adjacent fields will be considered, including:

  • economic sociology and anthropology,
  • intersections of political economy with other fields,
  • heterodox economics,
  • history of economics/economic history,
  • politics and political philosophy,
  • international relations.
