With no paywalls, RWER’s papers now reach tens of thousands of economists around the world. And with no allegiances to financial interests, ideologies and hierarchies, the integrity and range of the journal’s content is not subject to the usual restraints. Instead the RWER depends on voluntary World Economics Association membership fees. This model works because there are enough readers able and willing to pay the voluntary fee.
