Call for submissions: FIFTH EREH FAST TRACK MEETING, December 2020.

The previous fast track meetings were held in 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2017 in Paris, Lisbon and London, organized by the European Historical Economics Society and the editors of the European Review of Economic History. They resulted in the publication of several high-quality papers in the European Review of Economic History. The idea of the meeting is to provide feedback and coaching to junior scholars (those no more than five years from completion of their PhD) working in any field of Economic History and to give them a chance to see their articles appear in print quickly.


Those interested should submit their papers to European Review of Economic History, via the manuscript central system –– no later than 30th November 2020. When submitting through manuscript central, please mention in the cover letter that you would like your paper considered for Fast Track.


The most promising papers will be selected for the Fast Track Meeting by the editors. This meeting will take place online between 15th and 22ndDecember (time/date for presentations will be adjusted to authors’ constraints). The presentations will be attended by the editors and a group of external referees. The objective of this meeting is to improve the quality of the submissions and to streamline the process of refereeing. We recognize that diverse ideas, experiences, backgrounds and perspectives are fundamental to successful publication and we are committed to ensuring that this panel is inclusive, diverse, and representative of the broad Economic History community.   

The editorial board commits to returning editorial decisions and referee reports to the authors by January 2021.
