 Since 1995 the Annals are published by Wiley-Blackwell Oxford (UK) with the support of HEC – Management School of the University of Liège.

The objective of the Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics is the publication of high quality theoretical, empirical and experimental articles primarily addressing academics in such fields as: non-profit organizations, cooperatives, social enterprises,  public enterprises, public-private enterprises, employee participation, public services provision and regulation, both in developed and developing countries.

The scientific journal is published online and in paper format on a quarterly basis and each issue contains 7 to 8 articles in English or French. A thematic issue is released once a year. Before being included in a varied number, accepted articles are published in early view.

Under the responsibility of the Director and counting on the help of an Editorial Board made up of 40 experts, the editorial policy pertains to an Editor in chief assisted by 6 co-editors. All submissions are subject to anonymous peer review.

Origins

The Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics were founded in 1908 by Professor Edgard Milhaud (Geneva). Professor Paul Lambert from the University of Liège (Belgium) directed the Annals from 1960. From 1977 to 1990, they were directed by Guy Quaden (University of Liège).Until 1925, the journal existed under the name ” Annales de la régie directe “. It then called the Annals of Collective Economy / Annals of Collective Economy. In 1964 (English edition) and in 1974 (French edition) that the current name of the journal was approved. Three editions (French, English, German – Annalen der Gemeinwirtschaft) coexisted until 1989.

The scientific journal is the basis on which the association itself was built in 1947, which became its publisher until 2017. Since 2018, the Annals have been published by the Edgard Milhaud Foundation, which was formed at the end of 2017 by CIRIEC International and CIRIEC Belgium.

The review’s 100th anniversary has been celebrated on September 22nd , 2008 in Sevilla during the 27th international Congress of CIRIEC. For this centenary, a special issue has been produced, in which we can highlight 2 articles directly devoted to the review: the very rich historical one by E. Geerkens entitled “From the Annales de la régie directe to Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics: 100 years of Transformations in an international Journal” recounting the diverse changes lived by the Annals’ over 100 years. The second one signed by F. Fecher and B. Lévesque proposes to the readers the result of a significant work consisting in a review and thematic analysis of the Annals’ content over the last 30 years.Under the title “The Public Sector and the Social Economy in the Annals (1975-2007): Towards A New Paradigm” the two authors identify the main research topics and the most used theoretical frameworks for the public sector and the social economy.

In 2018, the journal celebrates 110 years and publishes on this occasion a special issue edited by Marco Marini and Bernard Thiry in open access: An Enduring Platform for Public and Cooperative Economics Research (vol 89, 1).
