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 2018 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 33rd year, our goal is to continue the tradition of publishing the best articles and organising insightful economics-focused events.
This year we aim to provide workshops and organise events featuring economists to foster learning and discussion between students and academics. In addition, we will organise debates in which we will select the best students to represent Trinity against teams from Oxford and Yale.
Finally, the SER plans to run workshops with Economics professionals, which will help students apply concepts and theories of Economics to real world problems.
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.
We look forward to reading great articles this year. Keep up to date with our events by following us on Twitter or Liking our Facebook Page.
TSM Economics and History
From its inception in 1987 the Student Economic Review has given the brightest Trinity undergraduates the opportunity to display their academic excellence and creativity in a published form. For most, it is their first introduction to the world of academic publishing. Over the years the Review has gained a celebrated reputation for high quality economic works. Each year we aim to build on the success of our predecessors to drive the publication ever forward.
Each of the past 32 editions of the review have included not only an extremely high standard of essays, but also an engaging diversity in the topics and concepts being explored. The submissions, adapted from coursework or resulting from independent research, examine issues from many areas of the Economics discipline, ranging from the application of econometrics and game theory in the analysis of real world problems, to the exploration of policy issues and the analysis of economic history. Topics are often explored from novel perspectives and challenge conventional viewpoints or apply economic logic to new topics in an original and thought provoking manner.
I am eagerly anticipating what new ideas, interesting outlooks and quantitative methods will be used by this year’s applicants. What can be sure is that they will illustrate the high quality of economic works produced by Trinity undergraduate students. My task as editor, along with the other members of the editorial team, is to produce a fair and rational selection process. As well as this, we must ensure that the papers published communicate relevant, sound logic and a deep understanding of the topic, while doing this in a though provoking and engaging manner.
As well as providing Trinity Students with an incredible opportunity for publication, the Review affords readers the opportunity to get a new perspectives on many interesting topics, gaining insights from the creative and challenging thinking youth so often provides. The value of this kind of novel and challenging thought should not be understated. On behalf of the editorial team I would like to invite and encourage submissions from all undergraduate students with an interest in economics, regardless of their course of study. I look forward to reading your submissions, and encourage anyone who is interested to read the engaging contents of previous Reviews, which are available on the website.
