'The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds.' -John Maynard Keynes

JAPE is published by the Australian Political Economy Movement.

A prime concern is that the journal reaches the widest possible audience. Contributors should write plainly, avoid unnecessary jargon and employ economy in use of footnotes.

Contributions should be sent by email to the Editorial Coordinator, Frank Stilwell. All contributions go through a refereeing process to determine their suitability for publication. Papers must not be simultaneously submitted to another journal. Please include an abstract of 40-80 words with your submission, because this is helpful for the editors even though it will not appear in the journal.

The normal maximum length for articles is 8,000 words. References to cited works should be placed in the text’s body, not as footnotes. For each quotation/statement requiring reference, place the citation in parenthesis (author's last name, year of publication, and page/s cited), e.g., (Harvey 2014: 93) or (Fine and Milonakis 2009: 121-27). Footnotes should only include material that cannot be placed in-text.

All references should be listed at the end, alphabetically by author's last name (and chronologically for two or more titles by the same author/s) as indicated below:
