Economic & Labour Relations Review (ELRR)

The Economic & Labour Relations Review (ELRR) is a double-blind, peer-reviewed journal that aims to bring together research in economics and labour relations in a multi-disciplinary approach to policy questions.

The journal encourages articles that critically assess dominant orthodoxies, as well as alternative models, thereby facilitating informed debate. The journal particularly encourages articles that adopt a post-Keynesian (heterodox) approach to economics, or that explore rights-, equality- or justice-based approaches to labour relations and social policy.


The ELRR is produced jointly by the Centre for Applied Economic Research (CAER) and the Industrial Relations Research Centre (IRRC) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW).  It is published by SAGE Publications.
