Margin—The Journal of Applied Economic Research, a peer-reviewed journal of original articles, is a focal point for the dissemination of empirical and theoretical knowledge in the broad area of applied economics-specifically in areas such as monetary and fiscal policies, trade and regulation, international investment, rural economics and development economics. A major emphasis is on policy analysis and application of modern quantitative techniques to development issues. The journal is intended at encouraging economic research and analysis to achieve a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the development process needed for policy making. The issues covered will have a broad scope of national and international importance.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Margin: The Journal of Applied Economic Research is a quarterly, peer-reviewed, international journal published by NCAER in New Delhi in conjunction with SAGE International. It publishes papers that pay special attention to the economics of emerging economies, but is open to high-quality papers from all fields of applied economics. Empirical papers with significant policy implications are preferred, particularly papers with evidence-based policy analysis that apply modern quantitative techniques to sound data sets. At the same time, high-quality review articles are not excluded. The journal appeals to a broad international audience, and hence, empirical papers that cover a range of countries or analyse topics that are relevant outside a single country are often chosen. NCAER’s location, the rising global interest in India, and the growing size of India’s global presence mean that the journal inevitably carries some papers that explore the economics of the major economic, demographic, and social transformation that India is undergoing.
