Routledge Pub have asked me to be the Editor of the Routledge Advances in Behavioral Economics and Finance (RABEF). I have accepted. I want to tell you about RABEF.
Routledge hardcover books range in size from 60,000 to 130,000 words, and includes research monographs, edited volumes, conference or workshop volumes, and Ph.D. dissertations conversions. Routledge Focus are 20,000 to 40,000 word books. They include extended essays, expanded case studies, and in general books longer than a single research paper but shorter than a standard book. Both the hardcover and Focus books are also published in paperback format 18 to 24 months after the initial publication date. Routledge will also publish some books in paperback format from the outset. Paperback books are generally in the range of 60,000 to 100,000 words. Topics, regardless of book format, can be anything in the field of behavioral economics. Topics can come from some of the major public policy issues including health care, education, poverty, income and/or wealth distribution, productivity, macro stability, and immigration, to name but a few. Perhaps Routledge Focus is the best format for a book on the contributions to behavioral economics of individual scholars. This could include not only current contributors but contributors beginning in the 18th century. JBEP vol 2, # 1, to be published in March 2018, will give several examples of contributors from Gabriel Tarde, the French sociologist of the early 20th century to the 2017 winner of the Nobel Prize, Richard Thaler. As a behavioral economist your research agenda is a topic of interest to Routledge.
