Fiscal Studies journal appoints new managing editors and associate editors


Fiscal Studies, the journal of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, has appointed James Banks and Kimberley Scharf as new managing editors.

As of March 2022, the journal has also welcomed Anne Brockmeyer, Eric French, Sonya Krutikova, Peter Levell, Eric Ohrn, Emma Tominey and Mazhar Waseem to join Fiscal Studies' Board of Associate Editors.

James Banks is Professor of Economics at the University of Manchester, Co-Director of the ESRC Centre for the Microeconomic Analysis of Public Policy at the IFS and Co-Principal Investigator of the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing. Kimberley Scharf is Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the University of Birmingham and Director of the NAO – University of Birmingham Tax Centre.

The journal, which aims to 'bridge the gap between academic research and policy', has earned a reputation around the world for publishing high-quality, original research papers in a style understandable to a wide audience since its inception in 1979.

Ingvild Almås, Timothy Beatty, John Creedy, Mariacristina De Nardi, Guyonne Kalb, Clare Leaver and Helen Simpson have stepped down from the Editorial Board of Fiscal Studies and were thanked for 'their enormous contributions to the journal.'
