The journal Social Economy of Labor welcomes theoretical and empirical debates and brings the disciplines of work, employment, and professional relations into dialogue.


Social Economy of Labor contributes to academic debates and conceptual renewals in the field of Labor understood in a broad sense, including Employment and Wages as in the traditional economic framework, but also working conditions and Industrial Relations. Social Economy of Labor intends to feed these debates through an interdisciplinary dialogue following the Anglo-Saxon tradition of Industrial Relations.

The journal is open to institutionalist approaches and to all research in applied economy encouraging the dialogue between theoretical debates and empirical work. Articles will be evaluated depending on their ability to articulate different theoretical socio-economics approaches of Labor and empirical work, whether field surveys or statistical/econometric analyses.

The journal welcomes any submission that fits with this editorial policy. Special issues are also regularly published on specific topics the editorial board wishes to encourage. If French is the reference language, the journal also publishes articles in English when authors do not write French.
