The Stone Centre sponsors the launch of the UCL Journal of Economics

After 18 months in development, the UCL Journal of Economics (UJE), launched on 26 September 2022, with support from the Stone Centre.The UJE is the first undergraduate-run, peer-reviewed journal emerging from the UCL Department of Economics.

The Stone Centre’s co-director Wendy Carlin opened the event, highlighting this new journal as a milestone achievement for The Economic Tribune, the official UCL Economics Magazine. The UJE represents a valuable opportunity for the department’s undergraduate students to showcase their research and prepare for a future career in academia.

The UJE also features a series of guest papers from students outside of UCL. The first issue includes several papers from the US - University of Chicago, University of California, Berkeley, and Vanderbilt University - and in future issues they will aim for broader international representation, especially from the East.

In June 2022, Gaurav Khatri won the Stone Centre ExploreEcon prize for best inequality-related research. The Stone Centre was delighted to learn that Gaurav’s paper The Effects of Rohingya Refugees from Myanmar on Low-Skilled Wages in the Chittagong Division of Bangladesh was accepted by the UJE as an article in the first issue of the journal. Supporting initiatives like the UJE and the Stone Centre ExploreEcon prize is an effective way for the Stone Centre to advance its mission of creating a new pipeline of researchers interested in understanding the causes and consequences of wealth concentration and inequality.

Speaking on a panel including Dr Nassehi (UCL, Centre for Teaching and Learning Economics and UJE Advisory Board) and Damian Phelan (UCL PhD student and UJE Peer Review Board), Gaurav Khatri emphasised that initiatives such as the UJE allow students to pursue their research interests and gain insights into the world of academic research. It also provides them with valuable transferable skills for the workplace.

The Stone Centre ExploreEcon prize provides formal recognition and promotion of the recipient’s research by the Centre, a small gift and the opportunity to contribute to the work with the Stone Centre. All ExploreEcon submissions are eligible for the prize.

Members of the UJE Advisory Board, the Peer Review Board, and the Student Management Team, as well as academic staff from the Department of Economics attended the launch event.
