IZA Open Access Journal Series

The IZA Open Access Journal Series, consisting of (i) IZA Journal of Labor Economics, (ii) IZA Journal of Labor Policy, and (iii) IZA Journal of Development and Migration, will be closed in 2023.

When the Journals were launched more than a decade ago in 2012, IZA was a pioneer in establishing the principles of open access publishing in economics to increase the reach of new research findings. The intended goal of promoting the culture of open access publishing has been reached, as evidenced by the fact that a number of other journals have now adopted this option.

The IZA Journals will no longer accept new submissions. All published content will be available online free of charge. We convey our sincere thanks to our editors, our authors, and our reviewers for contributing to the journals' remarkable success in the past years.
