Aims and scope

The International Journal of Social Economics published high quality peer review research in social economics. The focus of the journal is the impact of economic activity on individuals in community, and its wider social meanings and consequences. The journal seeks to explore the nature and ethical implications of social-economic problems, as these are analysed by geographers, historians, philosophers, political economists, political scientists, social and political theorists, sociologists, and theologians interested in social problems, as well as business academics.

Social economics focuses on needs, rather than wants, and the wellbeing of individuals in community rather than the individual conceived as an isolated atom. It accepts the possibility of a common good in which communities are more than merely aggregates of individual preferences.
