Journal History

Ensayos Journal of Economics was published in 1964 for the first time. Since 1990, it has been published continuously. Starting in 2007, the journal has published highly rigorous academic articles under the double-blind peer review scheme.

Each year, since 2006, the journal calls for papers to participate in the Economic Research Prize of Ensayos Journal of Economics. The purpose of this action is to incentivize the scientific output and to attract a greater number of articles. Researchers from the areas of economics, statistics and social science are welcome to participate.

Articles that have been published since 2000 up to our last number can be consulted at our journal web page (, and also in journal archives such as EBSCO and RePEC (Research Papers in Economics).

The journal has been indexed since 2010 in ECONLIT (American Economic Association), LATINDEX and CLASE. In 2012, CONACYT incorporated our journal into the index IRMICyT (Scientific Research and Technologic Mexican Journals), an index that has been recently renamed as CRMCyT (Scientific Research and Technologic Mexican Journal Classification), in which the journal continues to be part of.

Currently, the journal is managed by a Chief Editor, two Associate Editors, an Editorial Counsel —which is formed by expert economists of international recognition—, and an Editorial Commité —renowned researchers with a doctor title who are affiliated to Mexican Universities and active members of the CONACYT's National System of Researchers.
