About Homo Oeconomicus

An Interdiscipinary Journal

Homo Oeconomicus is an international peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of classical and neo-classical economics, public choice, collective decision-making, and law & economics, and philosophy & economics. Broadly speaking Homo Oeconomicus is a PPE journal.


Homo Oeconomicus started life in 1983 as a German language occasional series concerned with various aspects of the concept of homo oeconomicus and its application in economics, philosophy, political science, and sociology. In 1995 it became a quarterly journal and in 1998 was fully internationalized with articles being exclusively in English.

Editorial Policy

Although we operate a rigorous referee procedure we work closely with our authors to make sure that publishing in Home Oeconomicus is not an adversarial but a cooperative experience.


 The editors of Homo Oeconomicus would like to acknowledge the generousity of the Frankfurt School of Management and Finance for supporting the development of this web portal.
