Ancona, June 16th, 2011
In the past, the Italian Economics Association (SIE) conducted a first survey of Italian economics journals. Following the several ongoing changes within the institutional context in charge of assessing scientific work, this seems to be appropriate to proceed with a new systemic survey of the journals in the field of economics in Italy. Thus the SIE’s University and Research Commission has launched a more articulated investigation with respect to the previous one that is aimed at providing an updated overview of the situation. In the attached questionnaire, you will find a detailed list of information that we deem essential and that we ask you to answer with respect to the journal you edit. Your full cooperation is fundamental for the success of this survey. Therefore, we thank you in advance for your participation in this initiative, so relevant for the valorization of Italian journals. Naturally, the information on single journals will not be divulged in any manner and their use will conducted in complete accordance with privacy laws.
Thank you for your collaboration.

- The questionnaire may be filled out online in various stages, and at different times without loosing any information. At each exit from the survey information is saved, and at each reentry previously submitted information can be modified. Only at the end, after the last question, can the questionnaire be ended definitively, at which point access will no longer be granted.
- In order to move from one question to another within the questionnaire you must use the “forward” and “backward” arrows found on the lower right corner of the page. In this way, it is possible to move forward and backward and thus to modify previously inserted information. Do not use navigation buttons in the browser while filling out the survey.
- Note that because of the information collected on editorial bodies of journals interested in the survey, this letter has been sent to its managing editors, and possibly to its editorial boards. Therefore, it is possible that more than one person from a journal is contacted. Obviously only one questionnaire for each journal should be filled out.
