The Journal of Public Finance and Public Choice (JPFPC) was founded in 1983 by Professor Domenico da Empoli in the spirit of the Italian discipline of Scienza delle finanze. According to this approach, economic analysis should include individual motivations in non-market settings, political institutions, and collective decision-making.

Relaunched in 2018 in partnership with Bristol University Press and an outstanding, international editorial board, JPFPC will be revitalized in print and online while maintaining its commitment to publishing high quality, peer-reviewed research.

JPFPC is unique in the international landscape of public economics journals, because it is committed to explicitly advancing knowledge in both public finance and public choice, reflecting an inclusive approach. To this end, it welcomes submissions from economics, as well as from cognate disciplines (geography, law, political science, sociology), that contribute to our understanding of the public economy and its broader constitutional, legal and political economy matrix.

JPFPC prefers contributions in public finance and public choice that are original, topical, policy relevant and approach topics in innovative ways. It welcomes submissions of manuscripts that are empirical or theoretical, including papers on the history of economic thought and on economic methodology. JPFPC moreover welcomes behavioural, experimental and multidisciplinary approaches.

When considering a contribution's added value, JPFPC values originality over formalism.

JPFPC encourages submissions of manuscripts within its scope that contribute to its reputation as a high quality outlet.
