Aims and scope
CIRIEC-España revista de economía pública, social y cooperativa (CIRIEC journal of public, social and cooperative economy) is a quarterly Latin-American scientific journal founded in 1986 and published on behalf of the non-governmental scientific organisation CIRIEC-Spain. It publishes original, high-quality papers in economics, but also in social sciences, law and politics. Papers are written in Spanish or in English and subjected to a peer review system.
Scope: The research field of CIRIEC-España revista de economía pública, social y cooperativa (CIRIEC journal of public, social and cooperative economy) ranges over organizations, enterprises and public/private bodies focused on general and social interest. It pays particular attention to social economy -mostly composed of cooperatives, mutual societies, social enterprises, non-profit and
voluntary organizations- and also to public economy, giving priority in this case to labour policies, social cohesion and regional development policies, ecological transition and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. In any case, the journal will give priority for publication to articles specifically dealing with the topics selected by the editorial board, which are listed in the Editorial Policy section.
CIRIEC has the support of the Spanish Ministry of Labour and Social Economy, and of several other public and private bodies whose aim is the promotion of the Social Economy at regional and national level.
Nowadays, this journal is considered a “must-read” for researchers, managers and specialists in its scope.
