University Avenue Undergraduate Journal of Economics

The University Avenue Undergraduate Journal of Economics (UAUJE) was a collaborative peer reviewed, born-digital, open access undergraduate research journal sponsored by the Departments of Economics at Illinois State University and Illinois Wesleyan University in Central Illinois.

The journal, funded by a generous grant from the Calvin J. Kazanjian Economics Foundation, published high-quality research in several fields within economics from 1997 to 2004. At the time it was active, it was one of only two journals in economics for which undergraduate students took on significant roles as editors and peer reviewers (Park Place Economist, 2002). In 2004, the journal published its final issue, but its existence paved the way for Illinois Wesleyan University’s Undergraduate Economic Review. Many thanks to the faculty and students of both departments, as well as to The Ames Library at Illinois Wesleyan University and Milner Library at Illinois State University, for supporting the archiving of the UAUJE.
