Cryptoeconomic Systems has adopted a quality over quantity approach to blockchain research, and accepts only the best articles for each issue. In order to ensure fairness in our publication process, we have drafted submission guidelines for prospective authors. A full account of these guidelines may be found on our Submissions page. This page also includes instructions on how to prepare your manuscript for our peer revew process, as well as some information regarding how we evaluate articles for publication. Please note that Cryptoeconomic Systems also employs an Open Peer Review Policy to bring additional transparency to our publication.
Depending on where they are submitted, accepted papers will either be published in the Cryptoeconomic Systems Journal, a Diamond Open Access journal published by the MIT Press, or presented at the Cryptoeconomic Systems annual conference. Exceptional conference papers will also be published in the Journal (with author permission). Whether submitting to the Journal or the Conference, authors are responsible for obtaining appropriate publication clearances.
