The Journal of the History of Economic Thought (JHET) is the journal of the History of Economics Society. JHET is a quarterly, refereed journal that welcomes papers reflecting the full spectrum of scholarly analysis within the history of economic thought and history of economic methodology.

The mission of the journal is to further the objectives of the History of Economics Society. These are to promote interest in and inquiry into the history of economics and related parts of intellectual history, facilitate communication and discourse among scholars working in the field of the history of economics, and disseminate knowledge about the history of economics.

JHET is a scholarly publication of international distinction. In addition to publishing widely read and cited peer-reviewed articles, it features a regular book review section including reviews by leading specialists.

HES members receive a one- (or three-) year subscription to JHET with their annual (or three-year) membership, which includes electronic access to the journal and all the issues of the Society’s preceding publication, the History of Economics Society Bulletin (1979-1989). To submit a paper, or find information about the journal or about institutional or non-member subscriptions, please see JHET‘s web page at Cambridge University Press. If you are a member of HES, please get access to the journal through the link in the membership area of the HES’s website (login to your account).

JHET is proud to present to you a video series with conversations with authors on their papers published in the journal and their research agenda. You can watch the “Meet the JHET Authors” videos on our website or as a playlist in HES’s Youtube Channel:
