The Committee each year is chosen by academic staff on the basis of applications received in response to an email communication to all Junior Sophister economics students in Trinity in the first week of Michaelmas Term. What follows are welcoming messages by the incoming General Manager and Editor, plus details on the full SER 2017 committee (including email contact information).
The Student Economic Review is a prestigious academic journal which features articles written by Trinity College Dublin undergraduates. The journal is a great opportunity to showcase the ambition and academic excellence of our fellow students. In its 31st year, our goal is to continue the tradition of publishing the best articles and organizing insightful economics-focused events.
This year we aim to provide workshops and organise events featuring economists in order to foster learning and discussion between students and academics. In addition, we will organize debates in which we will select the best students to represent Trinity against teams from Oxford and Yale.
Since 1987, the SER has been a great opportunity, unique to Trinity College Dublin students, to engage with the college community through publishing articles or attending events. We encourage students to participate as much as they can to benefit from what’s going to be a fantastic year.

Welcome to the website of the Student Economic Review, one of the world’s oldest undergraduate journals and a Trinity College publication with a reputation for academic excellence. Last year the Student Economic Review celebrated its 30th year and in the 31st edition we hope to continue the tradition of providing a platform for undergraduate students to showcase the high standard of their work in the area of economics.
Throughout the past 30 editions the Review has been characterised not only by the high standard of the essays published but also by the diversity in the concepts that have been explored. Each edition features work on a wide variety of topics, with submissions being the result of independent study or adapted from coursework. Papers published in the Review examine many areas of economic interest from economic history and policy issues to econometric and game theory analysis applied to real world problems. Many of the contributors explore and challenge conventional economic wisdom and seek to apply economic theories in new and thought-provoking ways.
I hope that this year’s submissions, too, will illustrate the engagement of Trinity students with economics. As Editor it is my job to ensure that the selection process is fair and that the essays chosen for publication show both a strong understanding of a given topic and an ability to communicate these issues in an interesting and engaging manner.
The Student Economic Review presents a unique opportunity to demonstrate a high academic standard and being published in the review is an incredible achievement. On behalf of the editorial team I would like to invite submissions from any undergraduate student with an interest in economics. I encourage you to read through previous editions of the Review, all of which are available here on the website and I look forward to reading your submissions.
