Academic publishing in economics – a breath of fresh air from Preston McAfee

OK, this one is strictly for people who care about the academic world of economists. A nice, long post on the Freakonomics blog details an important change in the procedures for the journal Economic Inquiry, now that Preston McAfee is the editor. In short: authors can now submit a paper and specify: just accept it or reject it. None of that year-wasting multiple rounds of revisions, as demanded by referees, which also makes refereeing such a chore. I have never submitted to this journal before, but I will keep it in mind now.
