All manuscript submissions are now accompanied by Disclosure Statements prepared by the author(s). However, recommendations should not be based on whether potential conflicts of interest exist, but on whether the conclusions are robust, credible, and worthy of publication.

The AER pays $100.00 for timely reports. Payment is by check only. Checks are issued four times a year, approximately six weeks after the end of each calendar quarter.
