Published jointly by OECD and  CIRET, the Centre for International Research on Economic Tendency Surveys.

 

"Business cycles, even if less of a threat, are far from conquered and still represent the most serious form of macroeconomic instability....

A new journal devoted to the studies of national and international economic fluctuations is indeed most timely, needed and welcome."

Aim and Scope

The aim of the journal is the exchange of knowledge and information on the theory and operation of business and economic cycle research, including both statistical measurement and analytical aspects. The scope encompasses:

  • Analysis and explanation of cyclical fluctuations
  • Business cycle specification, definition and  classification
  • Statistical approaches to the development of short-term economic statistics and indicators
  • Business tendency, investment and consumer surveys
  • Use of survey data or cyclical indicators for business cycle analysis

The Journal of Business Cycle Measurement and Analysis is closely linked to the well known statistical and methological research work carried out in this area by the OECD and CIRET, in particular to the work produced by the OECD Short-Term Economic Statistics Expert Group and by joint research in economic statistics with other institutions such as the European Commission and Eurostat, whereas CIRET encompasses a wide variety of researchers whose work results in the most up-to-date insights in this field.

The journal will also provide a calendar of conferences, along with e-information and book reviews which are of interest and within its scope.
